Last week I was in San Diego for a class reunion with Frankfurt American High School alum — it happened to be the same week that the International Quilt Festival was featured at the Long Beach Convention Center. Oh my! I hitched a ride with Kay Laboda and we spent a day at the festival.
Many of the exhibits prohibit photography so, while I’m unable to share images, I want to comment on one exhibit in particular: Rituals, co-curated by Jamie Fingal and Leslie Tucker Jenison of Dinner at 8 Artists, was a standout for me. Forty-two artists depicted close-to-their-hearts rituals in a 60″ x 24″ format. It was a special treat to join Jamie and Leslie for a personal tour of the exhibit where I also learned about their jurying process and intent for the exhibit.
The Artist’s Village exhibit was just plain delightful!
Here are a few images of quilts from the Celebrate Spring! exhibit that blew my socks off.

Not my style of piecing, but the quilting dazzled me.
