Vicksburg, MS, Quilt Show (art quilts)

Art quilts from the Old Man River Quilt Show in Vicksburg, MS. 

I should explain that the quilts below are actually five sections of the same quilt. The quilters began with a single picture, blew it up to this size and cut it into five sections. Each person received a different section and was to complete it to the exact dimensions.

That's how they link together. Each one used her own fabrics and chose her own techniques. I have to say, it's gorgeous in person! I hope that I have an opportunity to work with friends on a quilt like this one.
