Bainbridge Quit Festival 2013

The long-anticipated outdoor quilt show on Bainbridge Island was a stupendous success!  The weather was perfect (overcast, so not hot), we had about 150 quilts on display along Bainbridge Island's main street, and visitors strolled and admired them all. There were traditional patterns, contemporary quilts, art quilts, and more.

Several groups participated including the Bainbridge Modern Quilt Guild, the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild, the Sew Together quilters, and the Fearless Quilters. Visitors were amazed at the variety of quilts displayed and the creativity and precision work each quilt showed. 

Our quilt raffle proceeds of $650 went to Bainbridge Island's Friends of the Farms, and the winner was Pam Cole of Seattle.

Thank you, everyone, for making this show so successful.  Thank you especially to the organizations who joined Esther's Fabrics in sponsoring the show:  Bainbridge Modern Quilt Guild, Beach Garden Quilts, Pink Chalk Studios, and
White Lotus Quilting
