Another Quilt Show


Last Saturday I went to the Block Party Quilters show in Issaquah. It was a great venue, large and bright. And a beautiful show. I took lots and lots of pictures, but I'm only going to show a few here.


The guild had a challenge of making and embellishing a bra, based on the challenge that the South Carolina quilters had. You can see those here. All of them were great, but this one was my fave, because I love a good pun.

Up In the Air

This is the same as the one above (Up In the Air), but I took the photo at an angle and without flash, so the wonderful quilting would show.

We're off to Oregon this weekend to sell pottery. I hope it all goes well. The Potter has been working so hard at making lots of pottery, and I hope we sell quite a bit of it. He managed to get everything in one car, including the pottery wheel, and I'm very happy with that. I wasn't looking forward to driving two cars down there.

On our way home on Sunday, we'll be stopping by my sister's. She's also selling her art work at a show, and we'll be helping her pack up her stuff at the end of the show. Both of her "helpers" (her kids) won't be home to help her. It'll be fun to see her again - and unusual to see her so soon since the last time.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. What beautiful quilts. I especially like the bra challenge...great idea. I went and looked at all the different ones, what a way to make people think!

  2. Hi Sharon...well, I find most of these quilts very inspiring...especially the 'Up in the Air'...I love the simple-ness of the quilting....I may have to 'tag' that one!!
    Hope you guys sell 'lots' and make 'tons'!!!

  3. I like your selection of quilts from the show. Every last one of them is great! Hope you have a profitable weekend :- )

  4. Thank you for sharing pictures of the quilt show. I love seeing other people's work. I have seen a quilted/bejewed bra exhibit at PIQF in Santa Clara a few years ago. It was hilarious! Those folks must have had a great time coming up with ideas, then putting them into a project. Hope you sell lots of pottery in Oregon.

  5. hey...coming to Portland? let me know and I can swing by on Sunday..
    otherwise-good luck! love that you showed the no flash photo of the quilting on that how it was done.

  6. That bra looks like my bra feels today. What wonderful creations these quilts are.

  7. What beautiful quilts! It seems you always know when a quilt show is happening in these parts! Have a fabulous weekend!

  8. Loved looking at the quilt show! Thanks for sharing. I really like the Summer Garden!
