La Conner Quilt and Textile Museum

So here are some of the quilts on display at La Conner Quilt museum.  They recently held a quilt festival and on display were some of the winners.

Here is Caryl Bryer Fallert's "On the Wings of a Dream".  It won Best of Show.

Here's a close up of the magnificent quilting.

This is one of my favorites.  It is called "Baltimore Goes to Japan" by Georgia Pierce.  It won 1st Place in the Traditional Applique category.

Here are a couple of the blocks up close.

Here is the 2nd place winner of the Non-Traditional Pieced category.  It is "Spring Blossoms" by Terry Aske.

This is the Honorable Mention winner of the Non-Traditional Pieced category "Spring Encounter" by Ruth Powers. 

And here's the 2nd place winner of the Non-Traditional Mixed category called "Name Dropper" by Pat Kumicich.

And finally, here's one called Reconstruction 1 by Lorraine Torrence.

There was an exhibit of Ann Fahl's quilts.  I own a couple of her books and her quilts are gorgeous.  I wish I could have taken some pictures, especially close ups of her machine quilting but photography of her quilts were not allowed.  Check out Ann's website to see her work and some close up images of her quilting.

After La Conner, we drove on to Canada.  The clouds were really dark and I wanted to cross the border before the rain started pouring.
