Pacific International Quilt Festival that is. It's held at the Santa Clara convention center and it's in a little over 2 weeks. I'll be going with my mother-in-law and a friend. Normally my sis-in-law is there as well, but she'll just be getting back from her honeymoon. I think this is my fifth year going. wow,not that many, 4 at least. maybe 5 I cant remember.Stars,do you remember? It's sooo much fun. Great inspiration and great vendors, how can you go wrong?

Since it's coming up I thought I would post some favorite quilts from last years show.

Love the colors and use of batiks on this one
Love her hat and shoes, and just the era

again, love the colors
this one was just crazy. It was hand pieced using something like 250,000 1/4" squares and the woman who made it complete it in like 2 winters or something. I was in complete awe.
this kitchen makes me smile
I love signs

I have so many more than this and I even have more from years passed but I can only find this years so far. I need to find the hard drive the rest are on. Between Stars wedding and PIQF October is going to be a good month

  1. I think I forgot to do the code verification, so sorry if this is duplicated. I think this is the 5th year. Too bad I will miss it this year, but I think a honeymoon is a pretty good excuse. :P
