Quilt Season in the Bay Area

These are pictures from last year's Quilting in the Garden. It's a wonderful event that I look forward to all year long. And guess what? It's happening again tomorrow!! I hope the weather holds, because a lot of work goes into hanging all of the quilts up in the old oak trees. The show is two days, but I'm going tomorrow hoping to meet up with my quilting buds, Holly, Pat, Nancy and Debbie. With a little luck I'll also run into Alex Anderson (and if I'm really lucky her parents too), Elizabeth from Late Bloomer and Pam her sidekick (Pamkittymorning). One of my favorite shops is also in Livermore, InBetween Stitches, of course I will stop there. Here is the back of their their tent at QIF last year , Alex signing t-shirts and some quilts hanging.
Other happenings include a local guild quilt show. a stop at another favorite shop "Quilter's Inn" and then Thimble Creek where Joanna from Fig Tree Quilts will be signing her new book.
Next month PIQF is the big happening ! It seems we go for months with no quilt happenings and then... It's THE SEASON! :-) More tomorrow. nite nite

Every year I say I'm going to PIQF and yet I haven't done it. Sigh!

Have fun tomorrow and take lots and lots of pictures of all the quilts.

Everyone has seen orange pumpkins. Some of us have seen green pumpkins. But are those really white pumpkins? Have a great day at the show.

I was really looking forward to this but it's raining this morning. :( I was going tomorrow but now I'm worried about what they are going to do.

Any ideas of what their 'contingency' plans are?

Hope you had fun today. I was offline until late this afternoon. Darn, I would have asked you to pick up a Fig Tree book for me. Oh, and I see GREEN pumpkins!!
