Yesterday I went to the Northwest Quilting Expo with my friend Nancy. We went to bible study in the morning and zipped off to the show. We even ate lunch in the car so we didn't waste any time! The show is filled with quilts and vendors and all sorts of things to drool over. It was fun to go with Nancy as she personally knows many of the award winning quilters. Nancy is an excellent quilter and she just makes me want to become a better quilter!
That's Nancy on the right. She's a long arm quilter and was buying patterns for her machine. I enjoyed watching her pick her new ones and it will be fun to see her finished work in the future. I could never be a long arm quilter!
Here's some of the quilts on display that I really liked. We both thought this would be fun not to worry about straight sides!
Enjoy the quilts!
Lots of quilting on this one. It was just a lovely quilt.
I loved the woven sashings on this quilt.
This red and white quilt was made by one of Nancy's friends.
Another award winning quilt done by one of Nancy's friends. She does all the the quilting work with a regular sewing machine and handwork. I loved all the little details. Lots to look at and enjoy.
Here's a modern applique quilt. Isn't it just wonderful...little houses within a house.
Can you see the mice and the cats? I loved this one too.
Quilting has always fascinated me. Looking at such creative quilting is inspiring but it also makes me realize that I am truly a beginner!
