I have been attending the Pacific Int’l Quilt Show almost every year since 2006, yet I get excited about it every time!
This year had a wrinkle. I had just come back from a 5 day event and was also prepping for Houston. About an hour into the show I began to feel overwhelmed. I knew I needed to take my loss and start the 3 1/2 hour drive home. I needed to listen to my body. As a result, I drove 3 1/2 hrs, stayed for under 2 hrs and then drove home. I know I missed entire sections of the show. But I did get a lot of great photos!
I am feeling a bit overwhelmed still and when it came time to pare down my photos for a single post, I just couldn’t do it. So you’ll get 2 posts full of fabulous! Part 2 here.
Here we go, in no particular order, with occasional comment:
I can’t quote the size, but guessing, 30′ x 10′? Hand. Quilted! It was a coup just to get a shot without anyone in it.
My fav of Jan’s so far!
Therese continues to innovate. She was part of the very beginning of the art quilt movement in the 80’s!
So charming in person.
Love that Baptist fan motif.
One of the quilts that I might have chosen if I had a “Judge’s Choice”.
Show stopping texture.
You have to see this in person – the detail, the color!
Another that I hope you see in person someday. The edge treatment alone is phenomenal. BTW, supraspinatus is a shoulder tendon, something Margaret recently had surgery on.
Oh that color.
Tile quilt! There are so few of them.
I’ll be posting part 2 shortly; both will be linked at:
