Let's start with this amazing appliqué by Maureen Burns. Appliqué (generally speaking) is not my thing in general, but I am in love with the colors used here, the gorgeous border and the amazing detail. Incredible job, Maureen.
Of course there was a star quilt that immediately caught my eye! Created by Galway's very own Margaret Cunnane this scrappy beauty pulled me in from across the room. It's amazing what you can do with four patch pieces.
My absolute favorite in the exhibit is this string quilt by Anne Maher. I love how it's done in "frames" and how the quilting so perfectly highlights the block design. I wish I had a detailed image of this quilt. Where was my mind!?!?
Irish quilters, you put on an amazing show. On the train home, my mind was filled with quilty inspiration. Thank you for such a great exhibition! Come back tomorrow for a look at the new additions to my stash! Woo hoo!
