This past weekend I visited “PIQF” – Pacific International Quilt Festival, held in Santa Clara, CA, each October. This was the festival’s 20th anniversary and it’s definitely going strong. I captured a ton of images of outstanding quilts. They were inspiring, yet also really intimidating. It is hard to believe that people can craft such perfect pieces.
This quilt won “best in show” – I think. There were so many people standing in front of it, it was a little hard to tell what was going on. It’s “America, Let it Shine,” by Sherry Reynolds of Wyoming.
Here is a close up… She used over 4,800 crystals on this quilt!
Here is another amazing creation:
I think this was my favorite quilt of the whole festival. It’s called “Inner City Kids,” by Arleen Kukua of Richmond, CA. Here is a closeup:
Stunning. Here are more examples of the fantastic artistry on display…
Soon, I’ll share the results of the longarm quilting for my two other recent projects. More to come!
