One time I described quilting block patterns as just squares and triangles.  After I said this I took a pause and realized just how wrong I was.  Quilt blocks are so much more as these quilts presented demonstrate.  What I find fascinating is how the shapes of the pieces sewn together can change depending on the color scheme and the placement of the blocks.  As a miniature quilter I have played with this taking small blocks (1”square) with the same material used and creating several different quilts.

Note:  I will be dividing the quilts up into themes for this presentation.  The center does allow photos (no flash!) as long as the photographer gives credit to the artists (always!).  I did not take photos of every quilt.  Most are for sale.  Contact the center or go on their website for more information.  Or…better yet…go there yourself and experience this magnificent display of a beautiful art form.

Another note:  When I take photographs in a public setting such as a gallery I turn off all the sound that my camera makes, I do not use my DSLR which will make noise when the mirror lifts up.  It is less annoying for the people around you especially in a setting that is quiet.
