“On the road again…..”
for the start of the 2010 quilt shows, and we were at the Northwest Quilters Guild Show in Portland, OR on March 12 – 14.
As always, there was a plethora of wonderful quilts on display, and friendly plus helpful guild members and quilters.
I had to stop these customers to take a photo of them for my blog. They’re called the “Necktie Sisters” as they are really sisters, and created their skirts and purses from old ties.
Here is one of the most creative quilts I’ve ever seen! The guild asked their members to create quilt blocks that featured fabric with bugs and insects, and then they sewed a VW cover with screen mesh for the windows! Very “hip”! There is one block though that features “Bugs Bunny” which was fun for the kids to look for. Hope the guild sends photos of this quilt to Volkswagon!
This was a spectacular quilt by the featured quilter, Anton Haas, Sr. The notes said he was inspired by a mosaic floor in Italy. You just never know when you’ll be inspired to design!
I loved the pieced border and center on this scrappy batik quilt.
I wish I had been able to take a photo of this quilt straight on as it was very interesting. The rings are all pieced and scrappy and then appliqued to the quilt top. I wonder if the quilter was inspired by the Olympics at some point.
More quilts to follow from this show next time. Have a pieceful day!
