My friend Yvonne and I were among the thousands lined up at 10am sharp, waiting for the doors to open at Pacific International Quilt Festival. If awards were given for the best, most inviting booth, In Between Stitches would win the prize.
Leslie made a fireplace mantel out of cardboard from bolts of fabric and egg cartons. Look at the cute stocking hanging by the chimney with care.
Gee, I don't think you've seen this quilt before!
I walked through the show twice to see the 150 vendors and the hundreds of quilts. By 5pm, all I wanted to do was curl up in this little bed covered with a new design by Bunny Hill.
Now to some of the quilts. There were hundreds of quilts and I took pictures of only a few. The quilts entered in this show go above and beyond creativity. The pictures just can't do justice to their beauty from the design to the machine quilting to all the 'bling'. Many of the quilts were painstakingly embellished to the max. Bling is not my thing, but I appreciate the time involved.
This is a quilt....really. Just incredible.
I felt as though I was in an art gallery. The use of textiles in every way, shape and form was mind boggling.
I'll post more pictures tomorrow for another mini show.
Now that all of my deadlines have been met, today is my play day! I'm sew inspired.
