    We attended the Diablo Valley Quilters 2009 quilt show today and I got tons of pictures.

    We had a lot of fun - it was a "small town" type quilt show. Thanks for posting such a nice slide show Pam!!

    We forgot to get a picture of us! Oh well, next time, and yes ladies, there will be a next time!! I hope next month we will go to the Pacific International Quilt Show/Festival in Santa Clara together.

    I haven't been to a good quilt show in a while, and I'm getting a hankering to go again! Might have to wait until Road to Callifornia in June. I'm glad you had a good time. Thanks for sharing all your pictures. Aren't quilt shows inspiring?

    Thanks so much, the photos were wonderful. So many amazing quilts. The one with over 900 leaves in the border, that was an incredible work. I wonder how long the quiltmaker worked on it. I hope it got some kind of recognition.

    The label said that she started on that quilt in 2000.

    I don't know who won any of the catagories. Might be able to see that online at the guild website soon.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to share you pictures with us. I was going to pick a faborite but kept changing my mind every third of fourth picutre. There were so many beautiful quilts, although I don't think I care for the ones with raw edges. Wont' that be a problem when they need cleaned?

    There were quite a few quilts that were done in this raw edge way. I really haven't seen that before. Most were art quilts that wouldn't be washee though the large one with the fruit patches was bed sized.

    I don't think it would last through many washings.

    I just love seeing all the beauties that people create. Wish I was 1/2 as good as they are.

    What beautiful quilts. The art ones are stunning but I'm a sucker for the more traditional ones - some of the appliqué is out of this world! :D

    But where were Pam and Esq???? Although I did think I got a glimpse of half of Esq's back in one pic! :D

    WOW! WOW! Fabulous quilts!
    Thanks so much for sharing them.
    I've never been to a quilt show, but
    I hope to go to the Oct. 15-18th show
    at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
    Guess I better get my camera charged! :D

    Yes, we shopped too. I only bought one FQ set of Metro Goes Green (I've been eyeing that for awhile and it will go great in my kitchen). Rachael did some shopping too but I'll let her say what she got.

    My hair fit in the car just fine. It was my big behind that was in question!! :lol: :P
