This past weekend my guild, Northern Star Quilter's Guild, held its annual quilt show. It was in a new venue this year. After being held at JFK high school in Somers. NY for over thirty years we were forced to find a new place for various reasons. This year it was in the O'Neill Center at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury CT. It was a plus for me because it was much closer to home and it was a much larger space. All the quilts and the vendors were in one enormous room, rather than being scattered all over the school as previously.

Several of my blog readers asked me to show the results of the Fiber Fall challenge that  the FANE group did and exhibited at the show, so here they are. Please click on any picture for a bigger view of all.

You can see that there was so much diversity, even though we all got the same instructions, no two were even vaguely alike. Most members of the group made three.

My three were to the right of the snowflakes with the white buttons on black being in the middle of mine.

Please come back and I'll show some more pictures of the show, including Best of Show.

Thanks for posting these, Norma! I wasn't able to get over to the show last weekend the display and photos are so fabulous, I almost feel like I was there!

I'm especially glad you posted these pictures because I haven't been able to see any other the FANE creations. This looks great! Hope it was a big hit at the show.
