Abbotsford Quilt Show - Quilts in the Valley 2006

I was at another quilt show Friday night. This time the show was in Abbotsford. The venue is huge and so there were a lot of vendors. In fact with all of the quilts that were there to look at and all of the wares displayed by the vendors, I actually ran out of time to really see things as thoroughly as I would have liked.

This show featured the Worldwide Postcard Quilt Exhibit. In 2004, the Alaska Fiber Festival sent out a challenge to quilters around the world to submit a postcard quilt, with the theme of "My Backyard". they collected over 200 miniature quilts from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, South Africa, the UK, and the US, and Canada. They were wonderful! These are some of my favorites:

This quilter obviously had a sense of humor.

  3. I think I am missing the sense of scale here--are these all standard postcard size?

  4. eww, makes me wonder if she really has a dead dog in her backyard!

  5. Those are some neat postcards. Thanks for sharing them.
