LaConner Quilt Festival

Today is the opening of the La Conner Quilt Festival in La Conner, Washington.  This event is a fundraiser for the La Conner Quilt Museum.  I had two pieces juried into the show, and last evening, I learned that my piece, Hedgerow # 3 was awarded second place.

Here is a link to the details about the La Conner Quilt Museum, and also about the Festival that opens today, Friday, October 5 and runs through Sunday. 

Here is the quilt that won second place:

 Above, a detail, below - the full size piece, which measures 89" wide x 37" high.  Hand dyed whole cloth, block printed, machine quilted.


We recently passed through La Conner (we were not able to coordinate our trip with the Festival).  Here is a picture I took of the museum, which is in a very lovely restored Victorian home.  La Conner is a really cute little town.  I recommend a stop if you are ever in the area.
