Urban Inspirations Quilt Show - Part 2

Above: This quilt by Jo Anne Powell called "Rubber Duckie" was beautiful! The pearls in the baby's hair glistened in the spotlight. Prettier in person than in the photo.

Above: "Kiirtan - Dance of Surrender" by Ligaya Siachongco. Indian origin, about pure bliss.

Below: Brenda Papadaikis of "Dear Jane" fame gave a humorous lecture in which she admits that she hasn't made a Dear Jane quilt herself. In the background you can see one that was made for her by friends. In the foreground were 4 Dear Jane quilts made by members. The quilt being held up was made by member Diane Schnect (shown at left, holding her quilt).

Paula Nadelstern of NYC lectured about her wonderful kaleidoscope quilts. If you get the chance to attend one of her lectures, don't miss it! She is funny and interesting, and very generous about sharing her methods.
