Have you ever wondered how quilting translates to other countries?   Are you curious to meet quilters from other places on the globe who love quilting as much as you do?

You will get your chance at the American Quilter’s Society Quilt Show in Grand Rapids, Michigan this August.  Bonnie Browning of AQS is collaborating with quilters from Egypt to bring us quilts made by Egyptian quilters,

This video shows you some amazing quilts by these quilters, known as the Tentmakers of Cairo.Two of the quilters will be here in Grand Rapids during the show.  I cannot wait to ask them more questions about the history behind these amazing designs that they are recreating in quilts.

For the full details, visit the Quilt Views and News blog at AQS.
