Gallery 121 Art Quilter, Ann Fales

Gallery121 member artist Ann Fales recently displayed her beautifully designed and crafted quilts at the Quinte Quilters' Guild Show and Sale in Belleville.  The Guild's challenge throughout the past year consisted of the presentation of a new quilt block design at every meeting. The design was interpreted in an individual way by each quilter, and then each artist assembled all the blocks into a larger quilt.  The variety of styles and interpretations were amazing - a joyous, colourful collection of fine quilts.  Below is Ann's stunning challenge quilt.
