Nathan D. Rosen Gallery Quilt Exhibit

I spent my morning off on Monday enjoy the exhibit of quilts at the Nathan D. Rosen Gallery in Boca Raton.  It was such a nicely curated exhibit, with a bit every genre of quilting.  The two ladies who were docents, but not quilters, were a delight to talk with.

I asked if I could snap a few photos and they agreed.  They were taken with my iphone so the quality is mediocre at best but I hope you get a sense of how wonderful they were!

The gallery was curated by members of the Gold Coast Quilt Guild and included pieces lent from the permanent exhibit of the Jaffe Center for Book Arts at FAU.  I recommend a visit - the exhibit is on display until the 19th of December.

Batik Jacket - Sew Stunning!

As I am known to snap photos of my wonderfully creative customers (with permission, of course) I couldn't resist posting this wonderful jacket.  Sewn from different coordinating batiks (with subtle tropical fish and turtle patterns I might add) and lined with another batik, I think this is the ultimate Florida jacket, don't you?
The button junkie that I am couldn't miss the back detailing!
Thank you for sharing your creativity with us!
