Northwest Quilting Expo: Day Two

If you missed the first set of pictures from the quilt show, you can see them right here. Today's group shows a few more of the themed quilts from the show. There were themes based on poetry and books, and you'll see a few of them here. So let's get started.

You may remember the work of Janet Fogg who spoke at one of our guild meetings. This first quilt is from one of her patterns.



The next one made me think of the view we can see of the Tualatin River Valley on my drive home.






My apologies to the next quilt maker. I seem to have neglected to take a photo of the identifying information. You can probably guess why this quilt caught my eye.








This one made me think of our encounter with the crows while we were ATVing in Moab last week.



This one from the poetry theme, a poem by Robert Frost, one of my favorite poets.




Each strand is a separate piece of fabric.






I love the simple, but effective, quilting in this one.




That's all for today. I still have at least one more day's worth of quilts to show you. Stay tuned.

They are beautiful. It made me think of poems that I would use for inspiration, if only I could quilt. :)

Nice to see them through your pIctures. I was there on Friday morning and enjoyed the Quilts based on Books and Poems. I was awed by how many Farmer's Wife Quilts there were displayed. Most with different settings.

I really liked the way Barbara Neill did the rain in her quilt "Restoration". All are so unique and amazing. Thanks for sharing them with us Barbara!

Barbara, you didn't miss the label on the birches quilt; it was one of several quilts which were missing labels when I was there. I know the organizers have a huge job, but I felt bad for the quilters who didn't get recognition at the event. Still, you can't photograph a label that doesn't exist.

Did you see "Family Trees" by Barbara Sanders", from Scott Hansen's pattern, in which she pieced birch trees and then embroidered family initials on the bark like carvings? Visually, I thought it was a lovely quilt, and also a great way to represent a less traditional family tree as some of us have. I always come home from the quilt show inspired by something, and I never know what that it will be. This year "Family Trees" was one of those "fire starters".

A wonderful display again today. I'm fascinated with crows, so that piece caught my eye.
