This exhibit catalogue chronicles the first-ever display in the United States of applique pieces made by several Tentmakers from Cairo, Egypt. The 95 works range in size from about 20 inches x 30 inches to 100 inches x 100 inches. Originally made to serve as interior decoration for the tents of sheiks and other tribal leaders, these beautiful appliques are now used to decorate tents and modern buildings and rooms for special occasions such as weddings and funerals. Although constructed of three layers, they are not quilted per se; in the best work, no stitching shows through on the canvas backing. This first exhibit will be held August 22 - 25, 2012 in the DeVos Place Convention Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan, as part of the AQS Quilt Show & Contest of the same dates and place.
