Pictures from the Long Beach Quilt Festival

Last weekend was the International Quilt Festival in Long Beach, CA. My mom and I went on Saturday and spent the whole day shopping and looking at all the beautiful quilts. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and thought the show was very well put together. The only thing that was a little different from last year was that they had a lot of sections where photos weren't allowed. So I was only able to capture some of the marvelous handiwork of the quilters represented there. From what I was able to take, you should be able to get a taste of how amazing the quilts were and how much we are looking forward to going again next year. :-)

"Colonial Stars" by Charlene Seifert (Arlington, Texas)

"Glass Beach" by Desiree Habicht (Riverside, CA)

"My Happy Quilt" by Carol Taylor (Beaumont Texas)

"Triple Four Patch" by Susie Andersen (Connecticut)

"Red Owls" by Karen Peirce (Belmont, Maine)

I loved this one so much, I had to take a picture of the owl detail :-)

"I Didn't Know I Liked Yellow" by Janet Ferguson Thompson (Spring, Texas)

I wanted to include this last picture to show what a lot of men do while their wives shop at the Quilt Festival. :-) I don't know these guys but couldn't resist the photo.
