The Annual Peninsula Quilt Guild Show

Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum

I hope that on some rainy day, I will make the usual post of ALL the quilts that we liked over on our other blog (Our Ilwaco).  Here, I will share quilts with the pertinent subjects of flowers and birds (and a couple of other subjects of interest to a certain blog reader).

Show attendees get to vote on quilts of four sizes.  The scary thing is that it seems like yesterday, and yet was a year ago, when I was walking through the show trying to make my 2017 decisions.  Time goes faster every year, which is an especially ominous thought when the quilt show falls right on my birthday.

Below: This one qualifies as flowers because of the border:
