I recently read about the First Annual Online Quilt Festival and have been admiring the variety of entrees. They range from being traditional to very artistic. I’ve been having so much fun looking at these quilts, I decided this was something you wouldn’t want to miss. And, you don’t need to spend any money for gas, admission, or a hotel room.
Amy of Park City Girl, came up with a wonderful idea for this online quilt show. Currently there are 500+ quilts on display. But each quilt on display also has a story behind it, and you can take your time to view these quilts (no rush like when attending a land based quilt show). This quilt show runs From April 17th until April 24th, when all entries must be submitted. Unlike other quilt shows, photos will remain posted long after the 24th, so you certainly have plenty o time to click and view each quilt.
This photo shows a quilt that I made while I spent the summer traveling in the Pacific Northwest, with my husband. We cruised from Anacortes, WA to North of Desolation Sound in British Columbia. Our boat, El Bucanero, is too small for me to bring a sewing machine so I ended up doing hand piecing. I decided to make a traditional quilt, similar to ones my grandmother had made, using scraps of bright colors on a white on white background.
To view all the quilts participating in this quilt festival you can click on each entry by clicking here to start. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I have.
