Washington State Fair Quilts & More!

 

Lucky me!  While we were in Washington State, the Washington State Fair was in progress.  Of course I dragged Dear Hubby (DH) to the quilt exhibit!  Most of the quilts were hung on high rafters above cases of other hand craft exhibits.  The larger quilts were folded in half or thirds so all the quilts could be displayed.IMG_2557The quilt below was really interesting.  As you can see from the photo above, it looks blurry from a distance but when you get close up, it’s not blurry at all, just cleverly pieced with bold prints, patterns and bright colors.Blurry ColorSpeaking of bold prints, this basket quilt was very pretty.  Basket of flowersThe photo of this footstool does not do it justice.  The piecing, applique, embroidery and quilting are a winning combination.FootstoolThese birds were so beautiful, they stopped me in my tracks…what beautiful handwork!Embroidered birds 3DLast but not least, I just have to share some flower photos with you.  The Pacific Northwest is home to some of the most beautiful gardens and the photos below were taken at Butchart Gardens in Victoria, BC.Pink rose close up
