Another closeup shot of a quilt at the show we visited the other day, this one of a leaf applique. Many if not most of the quilts in the show were hand-designed, then their schematics transferred to a computer program and machine-stitched, a good example of an old art brought up to date with the latest technology. Deborah Abbott took the hand-held photograph.
