PIQF preview

Wednesday, October 12th, 2005

This is my third attempt at doing this post. Wireless laptop has it’s challenges. I’m here. I’ve seen some of the show – it is huge. I met Pokey Bolton, publisher of QA and CPS magazines. She recognized my name. She is so cute. She is originally from Marin county so she knows Santa Rosa. I haven’t seen Mrs. Mel or Robbi Eklow yet.

Here are some pics (some are a little fuzzy – must be the two glasses of wine I had) We only had 1 1/2 hours to preview the show.

The DEButante show DebR and Debra’s quilts are hanging together!! Who is the guy on the cell?


Here is list mom, Diane’s, quilts hanging together.

Here is my buddy Janet with her Tamari Balls:

Carol Taylor – love her quilts!


This dog quilt is so incredible – won for best hand applique. See the closeup of the JR – looks like Maggie when she was a puppy.



Laura Cater-Woods:


Loved this simple leaf motif quilt:


Liz Berg did this wonderful quilt with tree motifs. The photo does not do it justice:


I love the visual impact of this quilt. Great use of Kaffe Fassett stripes.


Off to beddy-bye. Get to hang out with Mrs. Mel tomorrow!!

Happy Birthday to Me!!

Yes, it is my birthday. When I was a child, Columbus day occurred on the actual day – the 12th and so I always had a holiday to celebrate my birthday. I think I thought there was no schoool because it was my birthday. I was going to post a cute picture of me as a child, but Lisa did that – click here for a lovely tribute to her mom by Lisa. You can also see the wonderful tote bag that Stephanie and Mia made me at Little Birds

Must finish packing for PIQF. Hope to see many of you there.
