Quilts from Quilt Shows

These pics were taken at quilt shows over the years.  They are stunning and remain stunning years later.  They inspire me.

I apologize to the artists that I do not know who you are to give you due credit for your beautiful and inspiring work.  If anyone knows the quilters who made these beautiful quilts, I would be appreciative.

Very elegant composition.  The angular border really sets off the feathered star

I wonder if the offset border was a happy mistake . . . it really sets the eye line back to the peaches.
