Home from Seattle

I am back home, sitting on the sofa with Lisa, who arrived from SF this morning and spent the day with Mia. She is ripping quilting stitches from a baby quilt and tomorrow, I am going to give her a lesson in machine quilting. I will post photos!

We made one last trek to the APNQ show, had lunch at a street creperie and then took the bus home. I took new photos of some of my favorite quilts and mine, too. Here is a better shot oh how mine looked.

Look at this wonderful quilt done by Terry’s sister-in-law, from the pattern, Delft Tiles. She used a variety of black and white prints. She won third place in applique.


This beautiful applique quilt was done by friend, Virginia O’Donnell from Portland. It is title Little Brown Birds.

These two quilts were my favorites. The first is titled Warmth and was made by a Japanese woman as part of an exchange.

And this silk, with wonderful beading, which won and honorable mention. It is by Patricia Goffette.

Here are my crepes being prepared.

Mmm, good. Tomorrow, I will share my favorite purchases from the vendors.

    I love seeing quilts I “know” hanging in shows! Congrats on getting it in. Thanks for sharing teh others too. I used to have that Delft Tiles book, but I never did anything with it, so I gifted it to a more traditional quilter. I love the look of two color quilts though.

    Enjoy your family time — it sounds like you guys are keeping busy!

    I love that last quilt that received the hm….the beading is great. You did a good job of capturing it with your camera.
    Your quilt looks so cool! Just love it!! And the one around the corner (to the left in the photo) of yours is pretty neat as well.

    Hellooooooo to Lisa. Have a great time with your girl (and girls)!
