AQS Lancaster Show: Egyptian Tent Applique “Quilts”

While not exactly quilts, the highlight of the AQS Lancaster Quilt show for me this year was the collection Egyptian Appliqued Tent textiles.

Traditionally used to decorate the tents of important leaders, the Egyptian tent maker’s designs were truly stunning and inspiring.

I have a long standing love for Middle Eastern culture, language, and design.  Let’s just say, I totally fell in love with these.
