Magical Midnight Garden

I still have a few quilts to show you from the Arizona Quilters Guild show.
With over 300 quilts hung, it was a hard decision to know which ones to photograph.
My eye kept going to the quilts with black background and bright fabrics.

More intricate paper piecing is on my someday list.
I'd love to practice on stars like these.
Beautiful!

that sure is a lovely quilt - the only thing I don't like about black is the dust and lint it picks up.
