A Day at the NW Quilt Expo

The NW Quilt Expo is running all weekend in Portland, and I had a chance to go this morning. Wow. There is a lot of very talented quilters out there. The Portland Modern Quilt Guild had its own display of quilts. These were two of my favorites.

This one with the seahorse won a blue ribbon for computerized quilting.  It was pretty amazing, but I wasn't sure what they meant by computerized quilting, as it seemed more like a top-stitch applique to me.  I wished the little cards next to the quilt had more detail  about the process.

This one won a blue ribbon for best free hand quilting. The detailed work was pretty amazing up close. Unfortunately, as with the other pictures, I only brought my i-phone so couldn't get very good shots.

Finally, there was a display of about a dozen Farmer's Wife quilts.  That was pretty impressive too.  I can't even begin to imagine the amount of time that went into all of these quilts.
