Pacific International Quilt Festival, Part 5, International con’t again

As we head into Thanksgiving and winter…brrrr…I am very motivated to finish the 5 quilts  I have in progress…exactly how DOES that happen I wonder? I am going to make some nice cozy presents for people and keep a couple for myself. Time to get some more batting!

Here we are at the last section of PIQF International group, but not the last of PIQF since I still have one more post of quilts from miscellaneous categories before we go on to other things. Hard to believe I only have been showing a selection of quilts that caught my eye in each category!

Enjoy!
