The Pacific International Quilt Show was held in Santa Clara, Calif. last weekend and I was lucky enough to be able to take the time from babysitting and make a trip down. I was amazed at the diversity that I found there. Yet, being and international show, that is what one would expect. From this quilt about fish
to this quilt about shirts
to a quilt that looks as if it is folded but it wasn't...it was just the way the lights and shadows were interpreted in the fabrics
This quilt (sorry about the sideways display, I couldn't get Blogger to post it properly) was made entirely of cheesecloth and mounted on black fabric. Talk about ingenuity!
There were quilts that were so colorful and contemporary too. This quilt was just so happy.
Leaves of every color.
And a quilt that looked tribal from far away and when I got up close:
I could see it wasn't fabric at all but some sort of embroidery technique that made the different patterns on the background fabrics.
And what would you do with that stash of old buttons? Well, make a sunflower quilt, of course!
