Birthday Sewing Day 2007

For the past few years, my mom has had a special sewing day for me and my sister in honor of our birthdays. She provides everything we need: fabric, pattern, and even batting, to make a lap-sized quilt in the day. (Well, mostly in one day...) We just need to bring our sewing machine and supplies. We always have a great time! Below are the pictures of this year's project which we worked on yesterday. Click each picture to enlarge if needed.

First is the picture of mom's quilt which is quilted and complete:

We had lots of fun! Thanks mom!!

PIQF 2007

Well the show has come and gone and it was, of course, wonderful. I could only go to the show one out of the four days, so it was a marathon, exhausting day of beautiful, inspiring quilts and frantic shopping. Unbelievably, I spent very little money, so I was very proud of myself. This is my first attempt at posting a slideshow right in the blog, so here goes...

Coming Soon - PIQF 2007

The Pacific International Quilt Festival is coming up this week (Thursday 10/11/07 through Sunday 10/14/07) held at the Santa Clara Convention Center. This is the big one! I look forward to this all year long. It is an enormous quilt show with tons of great vendor booths. My only rule is: no shopping until we see the quilts! You could spend an entire day shopping and never see the quilts. If I had more time, I would certainly go more than one day, but that's not in the cards for me. So it's one marathon day of quilts and shops. Hope to see you there!
