MQX-West

Over the week-end, our family had the opportunity to travel to Portland, to see family, and do some sight-seeing.  We had a great time, and really didn't want to head back home.  I was lucky enough to also be able to spend a few hours at the MQX-West Quilt show!  I was delighted and amazed at the complexity and beauty of these quilts, that were literally from around the world.  I took a few pictures of my favorites.  Forgive the poor quality of some of them, and forgive the omission of artists and quilters.  The "WOW"-factor was just too high to not share a few of them!  Enjoy!

I did find a website about "The Quilt Show, by Laura Peterson", which was a special exhibit.  Click on the link, and it'll bring you to her website, which explains the wonderful story and process behind this quilt!
