Theme & Charity
"Quilters’ Symphony" is the melodious theme for HMQS 2014. A musical symphony is a blending of various instrumental components to create an audible delight. Quilting also combines elements; colors, textures and patterns for amazing visual delights. We will celebrate this visual symphony, walking among the stunning quilt displays and feeling the "music" of the quilt stories resonating. Bold or subtle colors tooting their horns, the cheeky thrills of intricate pattern piecing and the final crescendo of quilting; whether modern or classic, all complete the harmony and rhythm of a "Quilters’ Symphony.”
