The Rambling River Exhibit

Here is an overview of The Rambling River and 11 of the 15 participants. As I discussed in my earlier, post, this group is comprised of 15 women. 7 of us are from the west side of the state of Missouri near the Missouri River around the greater Kansas City area, and the other 8 women are from the east side of the state near the confluence of the Missouri and the Missisippi around the St. Louis area. I'm trying to put together the map of the state with each of our locations on it, too.

This exhibit is 22' long, and I'm sorry that this photo doesn't quite show the ones on the right side very well due to the bend in the wal. When it is displayed in November at our quilt show, I should have a better photograph of it to share. If you are interested in exhibiting it at one of your quilt shows or know of a gallery who would like to have it for display, please let me know. It can be yours for the shipping/insurance to and from our location. Each piece is 18" X 22" so the weight shouldn't be very much overall, I think. And it is just stunning to see all the different techniques and ideas that were used without sharing information back and forth until the "reveal".

You can see this in person if you are in the area on November 5 or November 6 at the Lee's Summit Quilter's Quilt Show. It will be at the Woods Chapel Methodist Church, 4725 NE Lakewood Way, Lee's Summit, MO from 9 AM to 5 PM each day.

You can double click each of these pictures for more detail. Enjoy!

Just loved the exhibit! I couldn't choose a favorite! It was especially interesting how you hung them to make a continuous river rolling across the wall.
Nicely done!
