Bountiful Rainbow and Sew Expo

Portland Modern challenged members to create a Bountiful Rainbow quilt. This is my finished quilt and it was a challenge. I’m pretty sure my family and friends are happy. I was having trouble because I chose Kona Sky and it was rather dull. My co-worker suggested the wedges between the rainbow wedges and it was the ticket.

Since it will be showing at the Sister’s Outdoor Quilt Show in July, I used some old fabric pieces that the show sells. I won these in a fabric auction at Westside Quilters Guild.

My friend, Joanne, flew up and we drove to Washington to visit her niece and go to Sew Expo in Puyallup.

This was the view from their living room window.

They have three goats now. Here is the one who likes to stand on that square cement.

Lenny and Squiggy, the alpacas.

I brought along a quilt for Laurie.  It’s Spin Cycle by Cluck Cluck Sew.

Joanne wanted to work on paper piecing so we made four fish.  After seeing how tiny it would be, we enlarged it 200%.  The pattern is Fishy Bones by Joanne Hart.

And the best news is that a new quilting shop opened in downtown Hillsboro and I walk by it every day on my way to work. I sewed two things for Amy.  Cross Tiles is the entry to the restroom.

And, Norm & Nanette are hanging.

If you are in downtown, Hillsboro, Oregon, stop by the Cotton Cure.  It’s absolutely lovely!
