Des Moines Modern Quilt Guild show up in the gallery

Marny here...The Des Moines Modern Quilt Show is hanging at the Gallery in the Round until July 25th.  The Gallery in the Round is located at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Ames, at 1015 Hyland.  The hours are M-Th 1-5 in July.  Call 515-450-6572 for June or for an appointment outside gallery hours.
Climb the stairs from the southern parking lot and catch sight of the quilt on the banister and then see Jill's quilt hung on the wall.

Close up of Jill's quilt, Portion Control.  The lighting in the foyer was not great for accurate, detailed photos.  The colored fabrics are silk and they are set with a very interesting textured cream.

Quilts hung in first circular room.

More quilts and a bag.

Close up of my quilt, Improv 9.  Pieced improvisationally and sparingly quilted.

Then you step into the large Gallery in the Round.  Guild quilts are displayed on the far wall.  Fellowship quilts hang right and left.  It is a beautiful circular room with huge windows and a calm, peaceful feeling.  This panorama shows it from side to side.

Des Moines Modern Quilt Guild quilts along the curved walls.  Such a variety!

Another view of the quilts.

Close up of Cafeteria Line, which we have discussed before, hung and lit.  April West's quilting is so striking.

All photos were taken by my supportive husband.

Till Tuesday.
