and Redding, California on July 26th & 27th, 2003

Here are pictures of some of the Celtic quilts that were on display at these two Celtic exhibits. Please be patient as they load - there are many! If any of the pictures don't load, try right clicking on the blank square and then on "Show Picture".

The Celtic Exhibit in Reno, Nevada was part of the "Colors of Summer" quilt show held by the Creative Quilters of Nevada. They had several special exhibits included in their show and Scarlett was glad to be chairman of the Celtic quilt exhibit.

The International Celtic Exhibit in Redding was held at the KIXE Channel 9 Studio as a fund raiser for this local PBS station. All the quilts were taped for next year's Northstate Quilts 2004 program. Please view the Celtic Quilts episode on YouTube.

The Northstate Quilts 2003 program aired on August 21st at 8pm and featured the Sept. 11th quilts from the United We Quilt touring exhibit sponsored by the American Quilter's Society of Paducah, Kentucky. Please view the United We Quilt episode on YouTube.
