The AQS Quiltshow was for the first time in Grand Rapids end of August. I was so lucky to be able to visit the show (and to meet Caron!). Hand quilted quilts are getting scarce as we know, but there was a special exhibition where handmade quilts were the only part of the exhibition: Quilt like an Egyptian.
Two amazing Egyptian tentmakers decorate the inside of tents with applique quilts. The applique is done in complex patterns, with tulips, stars and leafs. But first see this YouTube video, where you can see the men at work:
In an amazing pace these men made applique patterns with the most intricate designs. As it is forbidden to post my own pictures without the consent of AQS and the makers, and I obviously don't have that, I post a video of 14 minutes from Bonnie McCaffery, where you can get an impression of the amazing quilts these men made, and were on show.
Aren't the quilts amazing?! I loved the exhibition a lot, especially because of the handmade quality.
Hope you enjoy!
Have fun quilting!
