Bridges Of Portland at NW Quilt Expo

Last week I was able to attend the Northwest Quilting Expo in Portland. While it has taken a very modern turn one of my favorite exhibits was called the Bridges of Portland sponsored by Westside Modern.

If you aren't familiar with Portland this photo will help.

Enjoy these fascinating and fun quilts based on the Bridges of Portland!











This group did an amazing job on these quilts!

Have a fantastic weekend!

  7. This post was very instructive for me. The photo of Portland's bridges was a great "cheat card" for the quilts to come as well as a look to a new city for me. I too am not wow wow about modern quilting. I think they take themselves way to seriously. These quilts are great design and speak clearly of a "modern quilt". How is that for contradicting myself. At any rate I enjoyed this post a lot. Looked up "the mountain" and it seems to be Mount Hood.

  9. I like the flying geese bridge and the one that shows the bridge I Avoid at all costs! The one that has 5 stacked one on top of the other in Downtown.. When Daisy Kingdom was open I had to take it. Scary!!!

  10. I liked these bridge themed quilts and I don't usually like modern or art quilts. I love the second one and the one with the patchwork roads.
