Around America- Pacific International Quilt Festival 2010

I don't live conveniently close to any of the main quilt festivals :( Once my kids are done with school (2013) maybe I'll start traveling too some. Anyhoo there was a lot of cyber chat about the California Festival and here are two. They are deliberately "Japanese" linked, albeit VERY subtly, because I am totally impressed with what has been coming out of that part of the world over the past few years. Love the zipper quilt. (Take some time out to visit the rest of her blog.) She does a good job of showing labels and details.

I am currently taking a landscaping class at QU (birthday present to myself) so I really like this award winning quilt by Kathy McNeil.

I am at the "picking out a landscape and deciding on fabrics" stage fro my mini so have nothing to show yet and probably won't for a while. I do have the small zig-zag stitch on my machine up and running again so that is a start :)

What a wonderful gift to yourself. I do love landscape quilts and the one you have shown is one I have not seen. It's great. Thanks for the links.

Great idea for a gift! You have wonderful photos in your collection to inspire you. Good luck with the fabric choices...they make or break a landscape. Ask me how I know, LOL.
