If you were not able to get to the AQS Lancaster or Paducah shows, then you missed a fantastic exhibit. AQS has brought back two men from Eqypt to the US - men who still create this wonderful artform. These are some of the quilts that they make. When I call them quilts, I use that loosely. The "tents" are made originally for celebrations. The outside of the tent is a canvas, and the inside is this wonderful and colorful applique. At Paducah, both men were sitting at the exhibit appliqueing. It was really neat to see and watch.what they make...Isn't it wonderful?!
