    I think I see some bow tuck bags there- and that is a very cool OBW! But the first one- the art quilt- is my favorite. Thanks for sharing

    Beautiful! The one with the ornamental ginger plant is exceptional and the white with the thin horizontal colours is very peaceful and unusual. The camels are very funky too. Thanks for sharing with us....where else can we tour the world's quilt shows!

    The ginger plant one had the most amazing birds in it. They were done by thread painting. Exceptional work!

    Thank you for showing these. I love the one with the Japanese lady in the silver Kimono. What a great talent these ladies have. The traditional weaving looks very interesting.

    What a lovely variety!
    and some very talented quilters in your group.

    Do tell us about the camels?
    Were they a challenge thing, because of your geographics? or is there more to the story? Thanks!
