My daughter and I went to the Pajaro Quilt Show (Santa Cruz County, CA) on Saturday. Had a great time looking at quilts and quilted garments. Lots of Blue and White since one of the challenges was Blue and White plus One. Participants received a brown bag with a piece of fabric to be used with their own blue and white fabrics in making their Challenge Quilt. Here are some of the pictures Lauren took.
The photo does not show the detail of the forest ground. All the "leaves" were cut in small puzzle shapes and then layered before sewn on top of each other. Gave a great effect and depth to the quilt.
This quilt was won by the owner after buying 5 raffle tickets at another show, great movement in this piece.
Of course we got fabric. Not only were there venders with all the latest stuff; but they had a "Bargain Basement" selling quilt magazines/books for $1 or less, and fabric $3 pound, works out to $1 - $1.50 yard. Several books later and 15 pounds, we left in the car and stopped to see Grandma on the way home.
