there was also a wall of baby quilts, many of them made by the guild for babies born since our founding. ingrid's is hanging second from left.

but the other terrific part of the evening was finally getting to visit island quilter. what an amazing shop! this is the view looking back from the exhibition hall into the retail space.

this place is a literal maze of fabric. check out that entire wall of kaffe fassett (and say hi to katie!)

this is the view when you walk in the front door. so much fabric! so many colors! (and, by the way, they have seriously competitive prices. i definitely came home with a few half yard cuts and several spools of aurifil, which they had on sale.)

and we ended the evening with a delicious dinner at the hardware store, just a few doors down from island quilter. good food, delicious drinks, wonderful friends. a truly fun evening.

the exhibition runs through the month of july. if you're in the area, do yourself a favor and take the ferry over to vashon for a day trip!
