Here are a few of the magnificent quilts I saw at last week's AQS show in Grand Rapids. They were made by American artists and included in the Tentmakers of Cairo quilt display. The pieces that were made by Egyptian quilt makers were lovely, too, but to me they were not technically quilts as we refer to them since they did not have our traditional batting and were not quilted. They were for sale and many had sold.
I got to see one Egyptian artist demonstrate his applique technique - very interesting!
