|Some of Helene Knott's quilts and fiber art wall hangings|
Yesterday I attended Tidal Treasures, the Tillamook County Quilt Guild's 33rd quilt and fiber art festival at the Tillamook County Fairgrounds. There were some really beautiful quilts, and I had a great visit with featured artist Helene Knott, a fellow member of the Northwest Quilters. It was great to see friends from the Oregon quilting community.

There were many more beautiful quilts, some traditional, some more modern, and some beautiful fiber art. Here are just a few of the pieces that caught my eye.

Helene Knott was the featured quilter. She gave a great lecture and showed dozens of her quilts. We chatted for a couple hours afterwards and had lunch together. Helene is a wonderful, accomplished artist, and has experimented with many ideas in her quilts and fiber art.
The show is up for one more day - today! So, there's still time to go and see it. Kudos to the Tillamook County Quilt Guild for another wonderful show!
