2012 Expo

It's time for the 2012 Woodcarvers and Quilter's Expo!  Takes place in the high school here in Blue Earth.  This year over 250 quilts are being displayed.  I was feeling bad that I only had one to enter....but it was enough!!  Each year we feature an area quilter.  Merle Stensrud was our choice this time.  She is well known as the paper piecing queen!  I took the class from her and developed a love for doing it.  This is her Feathered Star and the picture above...which jumped out of order and of course I don't know how to fix one of her masterpieces.

Most or all of these were classes she taught at Calico Hutch!

I didn't get pictures of all her quilts...but loved this batik one.

Like I said...woodcarving and quilts.  These are just a few of Lauri Ristau's.  Love her work.

Forgot to look and see who did this...but love it.  More pictures to follow...but you really need to be there to see everything.
