CMQG Modern Ohio Star Exhibit (IQF Part 1)

I wanted to share with you some of my favorite parts of the International Quilt Festival that was held here in Cincinnati last weekend. It's so amazing that such a great show is right in our own backyard!

The Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild (of which I am a proud member!) had the opportunity to create a special exhibit for the show. The challenge was to create a modern quilt inspired by or based on the traditional Ohio Star block. And MAN, there are some creative and talented gals in my guild!

Check 'em out!
