    Piqf

    This is the weekend of the Pacific International Quilt Festival. It started Thursday 10/11/12 and ends Sunday 10/14/12. There are so many lovely quilts to feast the eyes and inspire us. I took a few pictures for ideas and thought I would share them here.

    These are breath taking! I love the art quilts like these...so detailed and amazing! I think I just figured out that I like symmetrical and balanced quilts. Even the scrappy stack n wack has balance...at least to me.

    Ooooo. A sneak peek. I'm going today - just itching to get there!!! I wanted to let you know that I was in Folsom a few weeks ago and I ALWAYS include a visit to the historical musuem. I never fail to look at those antique quilts and get some great fabric and patterns, etc. at the quilting gift shop there right in the museum. Love the bargains - some of the best around. Take care.

    thanks for sharing
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Hey this is a small world. I lived in Silicon Valley for over 40 years and moved up here when we retired. I lived in Willow Glen. Loved the show and only shared a few. Go early as it does get crowded.

    Gorgeous art! And in the form of quilts! I am inspired. And dare I say, a little bit intimidated? Just awesome. What a wonderful show. Thank you.

    Wow, that Wedding Ring quilt - amazing what less than a 1/4 yard (probably) of a light light can do to a quilt.

    Great quilts, thanks for sharing

    Here are some links from TQS for more pics (two parts):

    Glad you found some that allowed pictures--everywhere I was tempted were signs prohibiting photos! It was a nice show though!

    I agree. These are mind-boggling! Can you give more info about this show? Where and when annually? I might plan a trip around it!

    This show is always in October at the Santa Clara Convention Center which is near Great America. It runs for four days. I haven't taken classes here, but if you were coming up to this event, you might want to check out the classes as well. I have gone for four years and have never been disappointed. It is within walking distance of Amtrak so you could ride the train, stay at the Marriott and never need a car. Here is a link http://www.quiltfest.com/activities.asp?id=7

    Hope you are able to come next year. You wont be disappointed.

    maybe a little intimidating, but I don't go there in my head, the inspiring part takes right over. It's overwhelming. You just walk away wowed.

    They let you take all the pictures you want of the quilts in the show, but we were reminded over loudspeaker that you couldn't take pictures at the vendor booths unless you got permission from the vendor first.

    Oh thank you for the pics, this is the first time in years that I am unable to attend PIQF!! At 5:50 this morning I was near tears as I realized that all my guild friends were boarding the bus at that very moment...
