After some serious persuasion...I was blessed with a friend to travel with to PIQF on Thursday! Thank you, Rana, it was wonderful! I had a small list of items to shop for and one very special quilt to see and all was acomplished! So here are some pictures of the show...
Here is the quilt on my most important list! This is 'Bay Bridge Series' by Nancy Brown. Very worth the trip! I love her applique animals and am always amazed at the personality she captures. What made it even more fun was getting to see Nancy at the show as well.
Note: Not sure what to do with the difficulty I am having with blogger...can't seem to figure out what is happening with sentence alignment! Hope you can follow along till I figure out what is wrong. And it is only letting me load one picture at a time. Period. I've had to save and close the post, wait and come back to another 'editing' session to add additional photos. And the word alignment starts in the middle and justifies left only when I type enough words in a line. This is a bit crazy! Any hints?
Just look at this elephant face.
OK they did also have a few other quilts at the show.
And yet another quilt inspired by Nancy Brown by students.
The vendors were rich with beautiful fabric and inspiration. I loved seeing the Fig Tree booth with Joanna sharing her wonderful design and color.
I also was able to meet John'aLee of The Scrappy Appleyard with her beautiful booth of fabrics. She was stitching on her Buttercream Summer BOM which looks even more delish in real life.
