    Beautiful Quilt! Congrats! I love the Salmon Blocks. Where did you find that block pattern? Did you design it?

    Wow. My dh and I were there on Sunday and we both voted for YOUR quilt!! We loved it. We lived in Alaska for 14 yrs and we love outdoor themed quilts. We especially liked the fish border. Congratulations.

    Thank you so much! The fish blocks are an old Debbie Mumm pattern. They can be found in her Mumm's the word 10th anniversary quilt booklet. There were two very nice Alaska inspired wallhangings there as well. I took a bunch of photos but most of them came out blurry. I will post what I can tonight, including the 1st price winner. An all hand appliqued and hand quilted beauty that was Japanese Family crests. It was gorgeous.

    Yes it's the pieced fish border I meant that we especially loved. We took a few pictures of your lovely quilt!! We did see the little alaska themed one with the circles of fabric. My dh liked it a lot.

    We loved the one that was quilted with all the trees and mostly beige fabrics. The quilting really made it!! It may have been right behind your quilt...I don't remember exactly but we loved that one too.

    Oh yes, I remember that one. Awesome LA quilting on it with some very unique designs. I took a few closeups of that one. You are right, the quilting really made it. There was another one towards the back that the person wrote her husband requested it for their cabin in Alaska. He chose a fabric with eagles and owls and she did a very interesting and unique interpretation using those fabrics and very muted greens and tans.

    What did you think of the art quilt wallhanging that was X-rays and scans printed on the fabric forming the shape of a person? Very different and I found just a wee bit disturbing. Definitely quilting outside the box. I have to give the quilter credit for that one. Unfortunately my pic of it was blurry beyond belief so I can't share it.

    Were they in the back on the right? If so I did not look long enough for them to register in my brain what they were. They had a nice variety of vendors there too.

    That is awesome. How do you keep the back seams straight when quilting ?
