Quilt Show in Oak Glen

There's a small group of ladies who are associated with the Oak Glen School, an old rock building that sits up at Oak Glen and has been turned into a museum. In addition to serving as docents for the museum, they are involved in fund raising to support the museum. They are also quilters. A couple of weeks ago they held a quilt show, and Don and I decided to go check it out.



 I was drawn to the above quilt because of the hand quilting. I have never been able to wrap my brain around hand quilting and the time and patience it takes to do large quilts. This one is exquisite. It's by Alice Garner.





 This one is a sample quilt, called "Grandpa's Friendship Quilt, 1890-1902."




 I liked all the appliqué on this one, which was made by Vicki Hughes.





This sampler quilt was made by Gloria McKeehan.

There were many other quilts on display, but these were the ones that caught my eye.
