Quiltworks Special Exhibit

Quiltworks did not have a First Friday (she is contemplating discontinuing- boohoo) but they have a great exhibit upstairs.  The 3rd and 4th photo down tells you about it, but I really wanted to start with my favorite of the exhibit. It is called And/Or and is part of the Urban PDX (PDX is Portland, Oregon)  exhibit.

When my kids were young and I home schooled we went to Portland frequently to see musicals, plays, museums and parks. When we took custody of my niece and 2 nephews, my daughter moved to Portland instead of San Diego so she could be closer and help out. I love Portland! (Of course, I do not love everything about it) 


This awesome quilt kept my eyes moving from one detail to the next. Love! Love! Love!






The first apartment my daughter moved to overlooked the train station and this tower. It's iconic!











This was done by the same maker as the And/Or. 

I think I'm falling for these modern quilts more and more!


Here's my Instagram for the week- not much new! Have a wonderful weekend, dear friends.

  11. Art quilts for sure and oh so interesting. Wonder if the shop owner is considering discontinuing the exhibits because she is running out of people that have not already done so. Surely it is good for business.
