i promised to share a few more quilts from the APNQ show. So here they are:

Best of Show; Kitty Corner by Janet Fogg of Lake Oswego, near Portland.

She also did this quilt which I personally like better:

This was Best Traditional; Springtime Roosting Robin by Lynda Lynn of Newman Lake, WA I love this quilt. The colors were fresh and unusual.

I enjoy making quilts with a nature theme so I enjoyed seeing the following quilts:

Apnq8

Apnq10

Apnqcoral

Apnqfish

Apnqspanishmoss

Apnqzebra

These horses are pieced and running in snow. I think they are really lovely.

I also loved this piece called From Lugano to Zurich; a pieced European village scene; my photo is a little blurry.

Apnqvillage

This was a nice Hawaiian piece; I love how the outer motif is used in the center, only smaller:

There were some fun quilts, too. Mar Lou Weidman had two; this was my favorite:

This one is for DebR. (Note the red shoes.)

I meant to post this one last night. I really loved this quilt. It is hard to see the detail of this, but I found it to be different and new and quite innovative. You will just have to trust me!!

This one was quite interesting, too:

I was excited to see three friends from Santa Rosa, where I used to live ?Ǩ Colleen and Judy who taught me how to dye and Diana, a good friend from my old guild. All in all, it was a great show. I think the quality of the work was excellent. I did notice that the judges were more traditionally oriented and so I think the judging was skewed towards quilts that weren’t really innovative or more sophisticated in design. Just my opinion!!
