There was another special exhibit by Leotie Richards who has done a number of portraits of American Folk Heroes. There were quite a few of these, and I included my own heroes in this grouping.
Finally, there was a special exhibit from the Cover to Cover Book Club Quilters. Their website explains:
Cover to Cover Book Club Quilters is a book club for quilters organized in the Portland, Oregon area. In an effort to make more interesting quilts and be motivated to get them finished, this unique group of artists decided to challenge itself to make artwork inspired by literature. All members read the same book and each member then creates a quilt using the book as inspiration.
You can see more of their work by clicking on the link I've given you there. For this show, these quilts caught my eye. This first quilt won second place in the small quilt category.
This next one is a good book, if you haven't read it.
This next quilt won third place in the small quilt category.
This quilt won third place in the intermediate quilt category.
Tomorrow I'll be getting away from the special exhibit to the "regular" quilts where I saw a couple of quilts that looked very familiar to me.
