Quilt Show in Issaquah, WA



Tom and I have been on the road as vendors at quilt shows for the last several weeks. Here is a photo from the running track at the Issaquah Community Center where the Block Party Quilters quilt show was on June 19 – 21. Issaquah is a suburb of Seattle right on I-90 and about 4 hours from where we live in Spokane. Even though we had a 10 x 20 booth, each booth seems to look different because of where we are in a building. We had to haul everything¬† this time – pipe/drape/tables/display pieces plus all the quilts, kits, fabric and other items we sell. It takes about 5 hours to haul everything in and set up; and then takes aobut 2 hours to tear down and pack. Whew! It’s a LOT of work! The building had great skylights so it was bright and cheery inside the show; and the quilt guild members were very nice! I hope you enjoy the photos of the quilts I liked best from this show which I will post for the next several days. Here is an overview of the show (in the main gym)¬†from the running track:IMG_3466---400-x-300-WEB








The designer of the quilt below explained how she had collected shells, beads, and fibers from her travels all over the world, and used them in this quilt. What a great memory quilt!

I really like the way this quilt designer used a different setting for the mariner’s compasses and added appliqued motifs.

Stop back tomorrow and see more inspiring quilts from Issaquah!
