Pacific International Quilt Fest 2012

Hi Friends! This weekend, I had the opportunity to attend the 21st Pacific International Quilt Fest.

And it was awesome! Four days of workshops, a huge quilt show, and rows and rows of vendors? Yes, thank you very much. My only regret is that I only got to enjoy it for a few hours on Saturday, but with the kidlets, more time wasn't an option. I am thankful I got to attend at all! I trucked through the exhibits with my finger on my take-a-photo button, at the ready to take photos of any quilts that caught my eye--and that didn't have a line of peeps waiting to take photos.

This was only the second time I've been to a quilt show, and my first show was a significantly smaller affair. I thought I'd share a few of my favorites with you. I had to be quick, so some are a little fuzzy, but I think their sheer awesomeness will be obvious. I have several I'd like to share with you, so I figure over the next few days I'll do a few posts highlighting some of my favorites.

I had to take a photo of this for my friend Andrea as she's a big mermaid fan.

I included the sign that accompanied it because I had no idea how else to explain the awesomeness of this.

This quilt was ah-mazing. The bottom is a close-up of some of the applique and reverse applique. Those squares were tiny, and I can't imagine how difficult it was to select the right fabrics to make this work. There were several quilts done with applique featuring humans and furry friends alike, but this one just blew me away. Loved it!

There are more quilts to come. Stay tuned!
