Chattanooga AQS QuiltWeek Opens, September 16-19

It's Opening Day at AQS QuiltWeek in Chattanooga! 
AQS QuiltWeek Chattanooga is open!
Septembre 16-19, 2015
Go see: 
  • the show quilts (marvel at the juried entries and the winners), 
  • the special exhibits (got your eye on one of the Egyptian appliqué quilts? They are for sale!), 
  • drop your dollars at the vendor booths (they're showing lots of cool new stuff), 
  • take a workshop or sign up for a lecture,
  • visit the other in- town exhibits (the WorkSpace exhibit has 40+ quilts and hand-crafted stitchery items for sale by local artists), and
  • munch out at the local eateries in downtown Chattanooga.

Here is my quilt, Blue Rhino Moon, that you can see up close if you go to the show. A photo of my entry from last year, Pi E2—Exponentially Embellished is being used in the AQS marketing materials this year and you can see a piece of it on all the name badges.

Make a day or week of it! If you're a quilter, you will appreciate the talent, creativity and exquisite hand and machine workmanship of these pieces.

If you are not a quilter and are not familiar with AQS [the American Quilters Society], these quilts are ART! They are not like the "old time-y quilts" you think of when watching black/white TV movies of settlers crossing the plains in covered wagons, or what someone's granny made from old clothes. 

This is an art exhibit with fabric and thread!  …with several pieces made by local Chattanooga area quilters. And it's here in ChattanoogaAQS QuiltWeek Chattanooga.

QuiltWeek name badge includes a photo of my quilt,
  Pi E2—Exponentially Embellished.
See you there!
