Quilts in the Forest

This was the weekend of the annual Arts Denman studio tour. I was at the Arts Centre in the afternoon, answering questions and handing out maps. Before my shift I made a point of visiting Stacey Armstrong and Barb Mortell's "Quilt Forest" (link to lots of photos). What a wonderful way to display their stunning quilts.
