Lowell Quilt Festival - Boston Modern Quilt Guild Exhibit Part1

It was an amazing experience being part of the BMQG Exhibit, Lowell Quilt Festival. Our exhibit was very colorful with lot of unique quilts. I didn't to leave any out one out since each one of the quilts were extraordinary made by our amazing BMQG members.

The venue Appleton mills was just perfect to showcase the quilts. Our BMQG's members show volunteered for LQF(Lowell Quilt Festival) did an awesome job making this show just a great experience for everyone.

It was fun to volunteer on Friday and Saturday and spend some time talking quilts with Gretchen, Natasha and Naomi. Friday was gallery night reception and it was fun to have family and friend's to enjoy our show. My kids had fun playing with other kids who were at the show.
