LaConner Quilt Museum

I made the trip North to get to the museum and support my friend Sharon Tucker by seeing her exhibit. She was the first person who asked me to do a workshop and lecture at her guild, so I was so excited she had this exhibit! It was called Touch of Improv and did not disappoint!
The larger quilt here is on the cover of the latest issue American Patchwork and Quilting. 

 Nice work Sharon!!!

Gwen Marston also had an exhibit. Hers was called Abstracts Quilts  in Solids

Another exhibit was It's not Easy Being Green. Most of the quilts were artsy, but I photographed a few favorites.

They had a Milliner Guild display as well. 
I'm not sure what I would think if I saw someone wearing these in public. (the white one is cute) 

Here's the view from upstairs. It's a cute little town, definitely not on your way to anywhere though. 

I hope you enjoyed the photos. It was a really wonderful time spent with friends.

Have a wonderful weekend.

  8. Thanks for sharing these great photos. La Connor is a favourite destination especially during tulip time. Some great bed and breakfast places and quirky shops. Too bad you didn't go over th Anacortes while there. But you can't do everything in just a day.

  15. Loved ALL the pictures, especially the hats!

  16. Great exhibitions - thank you for sharing

  17. Thanks for the quiltshow photos! Looks like quite a bit of Handquilting? There seems to be increasing interest in Handquilting gauging from the number of members on a Facebook Handquilting page and then again in this exhibit!
