    Little quilt show

    I was asked to display my quilts at a senior residence (assisted living and independent living). There are just a few quilts hanging outside the dining area. I left a bunch of white gloves so that they might be touched. Here's a photo of some of my quilts.Name:  westview show 1.JPG

    Beautiful quilts. I know the residents enjoyed the show. My mother lived in an assisted living facility and she and I did a show there. It was such a rewarding experience for both of us.

    Your quilts are beautiful and I know the residents enjoyed them. I would imagine that many of them used to be quilters and have reached a point that they now need to just admire the work of others.

    Even if residents aren't quilters, they appreciate the beauty of quilts and are tickled someone has taken the time to share...Thanks for sharing your beautiful quilts.

    They are terrific. It looks like somebody likes blue.

    Also that was such a sweet thing to do. It is so nice to let others appreciate your work.

    Great display. I'm sure it was very much appreciated by the sewers/quilters. Even those who didnt sew know the value of 'handmade' items.

    What a cherry group of quilts! I am sure the residents loved having them displayed in the social area of their home.
