Cumberland Quilt Show

Queen Victoria's Birthday weekend, and Empire Days in Cumberland. We took in the Schoolhouse Quilters' Show and went for lunch.
This lovely young stilt walker was in the parade.

 A pineapple pattern quilt.

This small quilt was only about 14 inches high. It was made from a kit and features the Oregon coast using the "storm at sea" block. The work was remarkable with every tiny piece square and even and none of the points cut off.

 A lovely painted and beaded small triptych.

This textured quilting was on a small handbag.
