Yesterday marked the opening of PIQF, and what a grand show it was! There are a lot of quilters out there, as this show was full of quilts and people! I'm heading back Sunday afternoon, as I've discovered that's a great time to really take in the quilts in detail. And maybe do some more shopping....
Anyway, the show winners were absolutely over the top, and every year the bar seems to get higher. I don't think I'll ever achieve that level, but maybe someday, oh say, twenty years from now!
A few quilts really caught my attention for their quilting. It was fascinating to see how the quilter combined different fills to make a beautiful piece. I'd show some pictures but I don't want to get in trouble with the copyright police.
As for the shopping, I was looking for fabrics for landscapes, but nothing was quite what I wanted. But I did get a fun new longarm ruler to play with, for making ropes.
And of course, I had to stop by the Innova dealer. That one is my dream machine, with such a smooth, easy glide.
Today, not much quilting getting done as I've been updating the look of my blog. It was time for some new pictures--what do you think?
Happy Quilting Everyone!
