From Alaska to New Mexico, Saskatchewan to Hawaii, the Pacific West is a region that's full of diversity in folklore, history and natural wonders. The 27 quilt artists who created and donated this latest collection of quilts for the Association of Pacific West quilters (APWQ) let their imaginations soar to interpret the theme "Spirit of the West" in this unique collection of quilts.

Your winning bids support the Association of Pacific West Quilters, a non-profit organization. Producing the annual Pacific West Quilt show is the principle activity of APWQ as it continues to provide an impressive venue and competition for quilters across the region.
