Master textile artist and quilter Margaret Linderman was the featured artist at the recent “Spring on the Straits” Quilt Show put on by the Carquinez Strait Stitchers in Benicia, California.

The show was held in a building called the Clocktower, which was a giant old brick structure, perhaps once used to store munitions.

I was very taken with the amazing entry door.

The show was upstairs in a very wonderful room filled with quilts and vendors.

Margaret had many of her wearable art pieces on display at the back of the room, and many lucky quilters got to see her demonstrate the process she uses to create them as the weekend progressed.

The show featured many of the garments made with ethnic fabrics.

An important part of Margaret’s creative team is her wonderful daughter Janis Stob.

I regret to say that there were more jackets and outfits there that I somehow didn’t photograph.  Note to self – pay attention!  I think I was distracted by that pesky Mavis Quinn.

Behind the work table, one of Margaret’s newest quilts, Floral Fiesta was hanging.  I was entranced!

This is a quilt that you have to see in person to really appreciate.  The border has 10+ yards of applique flowers around it.  Hundreds of flowers all stitched in many colors.  The whole edge is triple stitched over a cording.  It is Amazing!

Margaret also had many of her quilts on display, but Mavis stole my camera and deleted all my other photos!  See what I have to put up with!  This was a show that was not to be missed!
