Quilts in unexpected places

I spent a few days in Sunriver this week and flew back through Portland. Imagine how pleasantly surprised I was to find a small quilt show in the Alaska Airlines terminal!!
This might be my favorite because of the pieced background!

Even her dress is pieced! Here is a close up:

Here is an overview:

The other side of the corridor had modern quilts:
All these are interpretations of the bridges of Portland, of which there are many!

Finally home tonight in time to have the kids for the weekend! Woohoo!!
Sewing next week and retreat time... Details to follow!! Not going to wisconsin though!
