    ESQMommy and I went to the Guild of Quilters of Contra Costa County yesterday. It was a small show and we didn't do much shopping like last time. We didn't win anything either! :-P

    We did join the guild!! I hope it's a good one and we get a lot of good times from it.

    I didn't take many pictures but here they are.

    The 1st one (crossed tulips) is my favorite!
    I hate to do applique but I might change my mind now.

    I have never seen the crossed tulips pattern before, and it is very striking. I love the quilting on the big log cabin quilt. Thanks for showing.

    Thanks for showing your pictures of the show. My next door neighbor went and she carried the purse I made for the charity event that she bought. She used to be a member of that guild.
    It is a small world, isn't it?

    All that being said, I love the bargello. I have that pattern. cathieG made it here on the board and I was just looking at the book to plan it out two nights ago. It is very nice!

    The little quilt is amazing how little it is and to still be in scale. So pretty.

    My favorite is the 3rd one. Nice bright colors, that looks like a picture from a Kaleidascope.

    Uhhh... that would have messed up the whole beauty of the show to take my picture.

    I am a very plain (if not unattractive) woman and I can hardly stand to see pictures of myself. I put off taking a picture of myself for a week for a quilt contest. I was very seriously considering not entering a quilt because of having to include my picture. I finally did it and got it sent off today. On the bright side I likely won't win anything and my picture won't be used.

    Dear, dear pittsburgpam. You are a beautiful person. Stop being so hard on yourself. I don't like seeing pictures of myself either, but have to keep reminding myself that beauty comes from within -- and there's lot of beauty inside of you.

    If you're only half as pretty as the quilt creations you design and sew together, you're a very beautiful woman. And besides, you already have the fine attributes of intelligence and artistry.

    Well, now I HAVE to chime in. Pam is NOT plain or unattractive - she is absolutely ADORABLE!!!! I can't believe what I'm reading!!! We had fun together - the show was small, and I must say, it wasn't very impressive. Lots of newbie type quilts, and nothing that blew my socks off. I've decided I'm going to enter a couple of quilts next year. IF, and a big IF, I get my Indian Orange Peel done, I'm entering that, as well as a couple others (my dresses and the star quilt I made for Sophia last summer.

    Now Pam...stop that talk!!

    Obviously, ESQMommy is a very nice lady!! And a sweety too.

    Yes, it was a small show so there were quilts of all caliber, beginning and experienced. Since we joined the guild we will be able to enter a thing or two next year.

    I saw you working on your Orange Peel and I know it's going to be just great.
