2016 IPS National Exhibition

On Sunday, July 17th, I had the pleasure of attending the Irish Patchwork Society National Exhibition, “Evolution.”

What an amazing exhibition!

Two exhibitions were running in the space when I visited.  One was “Distance,” a collection of quilts from Austria, Latvia and Ireland.

Congratulations to all those who participated.  I hope you had the chance to see the quilts in person, the photographs did not do the exhibition justice!

Congratulations to all of the Southern Branch members who participated as well!

Congratulations Cathy!
