I was lucky enough to visit on a day when a hand quilting demonstration was occurring. I am a hand quilter too, so I spent a little time talking to Esther Koble, the woman demonstrating her quilting expertise. (You can see one of Nancy's paintings in the background.)
Here is a closeup.
I think these had to be 1/2" hexagons.
I thought this quilt was interesting because of its border. (It was folded so the border was just about all I could photograph.)
Last, I found one more quilt very interesting--definitely not my taste, but it had such an interesting story behind it. I don't know about you, but I LOVE to hear the story(ies) behind quilts.
This is the third year for this quilt show at The Sanctuary. If you would like to go on a day when there is a hand quilting demo or an informative lecture on the quilts, you have missed that opportunity for this year. I imagine there will be another show next year. If you choose to wait till next summer, check the website for the dates for next year's show when it gets closer to the time. I would recommend going to the quilt lecture and/or the hand quilting demo; both are REALLY interesting. I got to hear the lecture one of the years I went, and this year I was just lucky to hit a day when Esther was hand quilting. Be sure to save time to eat lunch in Zionsville. There are lots of good places to have a nice lunch. Actually, there is a restaurant right in The Sanctuary called Ghyslain. You'll (at the very least) want to pick up a piece of candy or pastry there. If you plan on eating lunch there, you might want to give them a call and make reservations. Check out the info on the restaurant here--Ghyslain.
