Home From PIQF

WOW!!! If you didn't make it to this year's show you missed out. I saw many great things and came home inspired to sew. I haven't downloaded my pictures yet, so hop on over to Liz's Blog for some great photos.

The wonderful quilter Rhonda Beyer took home 2 ribbons at this show. A first place for the quilt she did with Penelope Tucker. This picture is of the quilt at Road to California, where it also scored a first place.

Rhonda also got a second place on another quilt she appliqued and quilted. I am not sure if I took a picture of it yesterday, Sorry.

I also got to meet the Fabulous Gina Halladay of Quilters Buzz, Threaded Pear, AND Cranberry Quiltworks! I had the most wonderful time talking to her. I also got a Threaded Pear pattern and I can't wait to make it! Gina told me of some exciting things she has coming up. By the time I got to my car I wanted to drive to Orange County. Be on the look out for some GREAT things from Gina this next year.

I stopped by Quarter Inch Publishing and of course I had to buy something. So I got the new pattern Skully. I actually got the kit in a cute glow in the dark skull bag. Jane's sister was not with her this year, she was home helping their younger sister. I left the booth in tears, please keep their family in your prayers.

Lastly as I was leaving I stopped and talked to friends. MISTAKE!!! I got challenged, the good Lord knows I can't pass up a challenge. So here it is, I have to complete a quilt, photograph it (Heather that's your part), fill out an application and mail it in time for next years show. Wish me luck! I started on it today.
