Dinner and a show....what could be better? A quilt exhibit, perhaps? Well, how about that! The Lighthouse Quilters of Racine have art quilts on display in the gallery adjacent to the chapel, open before and after the performance. It was interesting to observe the non-quilter concertgoers as they looked at the quilts. Here are some of the quilts. Sorry, I only got two of the quiltmakers' names.
This exquisite applique is by Betty Ekern Suiter, who has received many awards for her hand-quilting. It is hand-appliqued, too, and the label said it took 3,640 hours to stitch.

The label acknowledges this as a Carrie Nelson pattern.
Cindy Garcia's portrait of her grandfather. The blue jeans are real jeans.
That's a piece of molding, not an extension of the quilt. :)
