The Kenosha Art Association has monthly pop-up gallery shows, and June's show, "Square Up for the Arts," featured quilts made by members of the Milwaukee Modern Quilt Guild. Margaret Heller from Ready for Bed Quilts and one of our guild's wonderful members, Bethany Wise, worked tirelessly with the Art Association and other Kenosha community members to make it happen.
Anyway, the Art Association lined up a really cool vacant storefront in downtown Kenosha in which to hang our quilts (supplemented by other artwork, such as these flowers made entirely from found items). A steady stream of people went through the entire evening.
Here's a sampling of some of the quilts from the show:

All in all, this was such a wonderful event. Thank you to Bethany and everyone in Kenosha for putting on a great show (and for coming out to see it)! I hope we'll be able to have more events like this around the area in the future!
P.S. Tomorrow I'm headed to a very different kind of quilt show—International Quilt Festival in Chicago! I'll be there with Faith, so if you're there, keep an eye out for us!
