AQS Quilt Show Grand Rapids on Friday

AQS Tentmakers of Cairo; quilt approx. 70 inches square.
I took the day off work to attend the AQS show in Grand Rapids. I was very impressed by the caliber of the show, and the layout was great. I was especially impressed by the live exhibit Tentmakers of Cairo. Two men (the tentmakers) were quietly stitching away while everyone looked at their finished pieces (all were offered for sale, and some were already sold). I daresay that these two men could appliqué circles around anyone in the convention center (very fast and unusual technique).
