More Quilts From PNWQ

Here's some more of my favorite quilts from the Pacific Northwest Quiltfest. Really, I loved all of the quilts, so it's hard to limit this to just a few! And, again, I apologize for not knowing the title of the quilt or the name of the quilter.

Today I'm going to start out with the examples of free-piecing that I found at the show. I was so excited to see these!
This is a partial picture of a quilt that had free-pieced log cabins and free-pieced flying geese in the borders.

The title of this quilt is "Ladder Day Saints" and was made by Barbara Houshmand. I loved the ladders and I loved the pun-ny title!

A closeup of her letters. (Sorry for the poor quality of the photo.)

I think this quilt is entirely free-pieced!

A closeup of the house and trees.
Now, the rest of the photos for today:

I'm crazy about leaves. Look at the skeleton leaf in the lower left-hand corner of the quilt on the right. Wow!

I loved all the colors in this one!

And, the closeup reveals this was all done with half-square triangles - one in black/white and the other in a color! I can't imagine doing this one without a design wall. What a great project for Bonnie's leaders and enders!

Lots of hand-dyed fabrics in this one.

The closeup with all the hand-stitching.

This quilt was just stunning. Wow!
