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.
A warning that this post is going to be picture heavy, everyone did just an awesome job I didn't want to leave anyone out. Here it comes:
Here are the pics of quilts by various BMQG members:
