Just returned from Washington State Quilters Show in Spokane, WA. The show is very well put together and well run. It was located in the new Spokane Convention Center, the staff was very helpful and the bathrooms were always clean.
Now to the Quilts. Such a wonderful variety of styles and techniques from art quilts to traditional. I was really inpressed with the number of large turned needle applique quilts. I have not learn turned needle applique just yet. But these quilts are true works of art. One was so intricate and layered, I was glad to see that the maker had put on it's information card that it had taken her 3 1/2 years to make. It was beautiful and worth every minute of effort she put into it.
The guild also provided a wonderful slection of demostrations to help inspire. Machine quilting, what to do with left overs and helpful tips when making wearables, and many more. All in all a great show and lots of fun. One of the great side effects of being a vendor at a variety of quilt shows is getting to see all of the wonderful quilts and meet intresting and inspiring people.
