Pacific International Quilt Show 2011

Almost a month ago now, I went to the Pacific International Quilt show in Santa Clara. They show quilts, locally and from around the world, but they also have a lot of fabric too. Which is why I like to go as I am not a super quilter type person. But I did take some pictures of quilts and thought I would share :)

These are some of the winners and I really don't care for them too much as they just aren't my style.

This was the overall winner (I think), there were a lot of categories. This is the women who made it:

Then there was some weird ideas, clever I'll give you that, but I like my quilts to be functional.

This was done by a husband and wife team, look at that embroidery, it was hand done.

A new twist on a classic tie quilt

An elusive man spotting. Although I must say that there were more men at the show this year than I've ever seen.

I like the circle quilting on these

And this was pretty interesting

The quilts were all amazing and took an incredible amount of time and energy to make...maybe some day...but I think I am going to stick with my simple patchworks for now :) Hope everyone has a good weekend!
