Marvel and Wonder

A few years ago I went to a big quilt show at the Lansing Center. It was the first one I’d ever been to and some of the quilts I saw there literally left me in shock and awe. They were amazing! I still get gobsmacked that way at every new exhibit I visit by at least one or two (or five) really great pieces, and that’s not even counting the many, many others that leave me  marveling and in wonder at their incredible artistry. I’m sharing a few that I particularly liked from this past weekend’s International Quilt Festival Cincinnati. Enjoy!
