Quiltfest - 'Here Be Dragons' exhibition roundup
Now that Quiltfest's main exhibitions are down, I can post photos showing you what you missed ;-)
Ferret's exhibition at the Pavilion was stunning and we had a very positive response from our visitors, if indeed many of them were somewhat stuck for words initially and it tended to be of the 'WOW!' variety.
I'll leave most of the words in this blogpost to Ferret, via her own blog. She has written several posts about the exhibition, with different photos to those I'm showing here, including comments about the quality of the gallery space (unusually long sightlines), her demo pieces (be quick if you want one of these, as many are already sold) and life in her famous van (inc. gourmet dinner). I'm filling in the virtual gallery experience with general photos of her work in situ, but you'll need to go to her website galleries to see better photos of these quilts.
The photos run, more or less, in the order you'd have seen the show if you'd walked around clockwise, and include details of some of the quilts (detail pictures are after the main photo). Enjoy!

And 'at home' in the van - plenty of home comforts!
Having Ferret demoing and able to meet our visitors every day made a big difference to the Quiltfest experience this year and I'd like to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH FERRET!!! I think Quiltfest 2012 will be one that our visitors remember for a long time.
