A Novel Idea- First Friday Exhibit

I finally was able to make it to a First Friday Exhibit at Quiltworks.  It sure helps when it is still daylight and the roads are not snowy and icey. It's a one hour drive to get to the shop, so it isn't super convenient.

This month it was all about novel quilts! 
One side was filled with quilts based on the book RanJana's Chai. 
The other side of the exhibit was finished quilts from past novels. 

I'm a huge fan of Kristen Shields and her quilts never disappoint me! 

 This one had an intriguing story. 

This is the various novel idea books:

 Lovely sashiko and indigo fabric!

I hope you enjoyed these quilts as much as I did!
