Doing Quilt-y Stuff

I have been so busy lately! My sister came to visit last week, and we had a good time doing quilt-y stuff, talking, laughing and generally carrying on! It was good to see her again.

One of the reasons she came up to visit is to go to The Pacific Northwest Quiltfest held in Seattle last weekend. She's lived here in Washington for 2o years and never been to this show! So, we got to go together and it was the first time for both of us.

It was a wonderful show. Very impressive quilts, great venue and nice quilters to hang out with! My post this time is all pictures of quilts from the quilt show. All of the quilts were just awesome. These are some of my favorites. I will post some more in a few days.

I apologize in advance - not all of them are great photos, and I didn't get the titles of the quilts or the names of the makers, but I hope you enjoy the photos.








This quilt has lots of wool pieces in it!








This one was almost all embroidery. Just fantastic stitchery, and so whimsical! And the closeups:





More photos to come soon!
