Well, we really have seen some very special quilts today. Again the dome was crowded with eager shoppers and onlookers.
Here are some of the amazing quilts we saw today. It has been interesting to be inspired, even enthralled, by quilts not normally in our colour palette or design.
Unfortunately the light has not been kind to some of the quilts but you will be able to see the details on most of them.

Most of the quilts have been hand stitched and hand quilted.

I think we may need a day of rest tomorrow!!
Wow! What amazing work. I think my favourite is the red check bonbons in the original design category.
Amazing indeed. We still have two more category’s to explore…and I think the best is yet to come.
Can only imagine the utter delight for you & Maureen being among all this creativity
Kids in a candy store?
You are right there Heather. Every corner offers more delightful quilts.
Awesome. We bought a wall hanging in Takayama in the hills. Simple design but the stitching is so precise and beautiful. So many to love!! Enjoy the well deserved rest.
Thank Rob. We are off to see some gardens today.
That is just incredible such detailed work.
We have certainly been as impressed with the craftsmanship as we imagined we would be. It is amazing.
