What a Quilt Show!

The Pacific International Quilt Festival was in town and I went with a few friends to check it out.  Wow!  This was advertised as the largest quilt festival on the West Coast and this was no exaggeration; we quickly realized we didn't give ourselves enough time to see all the fabulous quilts that are really works of art.

Here is some of what we saw:

This quilt was Best of Show:

The lady who made this is from Wyoming and has been quilting for 6 years, has four children and sewed this on a 20 year old sewing machine - amazing!  Four children and still finding time to crank this out on an  old sewing machine.  I didn't dare ask her if she home schooled her kids.

Even the back was beautifully done:


I love the colors and design in this quilt:

A lovely begonia quilt:


This quilt won best machine workmanship for a traditional quilt:






Kaffe Fassett's book was featured at several of the booths:


A really great afternoon....
