Visiting a friend in Maryland, USA, part 1: AQS Lancaster Quilt show

My friend Teri and I had a very big happy and busy week together in the USA, where we met for the first time after writing lots of e-mails to one and other.
One of the things we did was visit the  AQS Lancaster quiltshow. 
One of the quilts there was Teri's:

This picture  is from this newspaper:  The Star (newspaper)
My picture was not good so instead I show you this one above, where you can see all the marvelous quilting in the background. It is a whole cloth quilt and there is free hand embroidery on it and free motion quilting in the background.

A few other quilts:

This quilt is from Margaret Solomon Gunn (Gorham, ME) If you want to see more of her click on her name, it is worth it, I think.

 Sarah's Revival in blue' by Gail H. Smith an Karen C Mc tavish (North Barrington, IL)

 'Kalocsa' by Chieko Shiraishi (Japan)
