I was able this year to attend the Pacific International Quilt Show in Santa Clara, CA.  I had a piece that was shown there, so had to make sure to get a photo of it.  
And there it is in the center.  So pleased to be able to be offered this opportunity.  
Now we all know that quilt shows have vendors.  I have very few opportunities to fabric and notion shop in my area.  So, a quilt show with lots of vendors is pure joy.
Fun background fabric.  I am not a fond of solid fabrics.  I prefer to work with these types of fabrics for backgrounds.  
Now I have a plan for these four combinations and hope to get to that soon.  Thinking pears appliqués on the printed as backgrounds.  More on that later!
And these last three just because they were fun and caught my eye.  Frankly sometimes the vendors are more fun than the quilts in the show.  I did spend plenty of time looking at them too.  Not to mention all the fun demos many of the vendors have.


    congratulations on being included in the show!
    of course you found awesome fabric...brings back great memories of going to shows with you!!
    did you see Julie??

  2. Hi Donnalee! It looks like you had a fabulous time shopping your way through the show. And how exciting to able to enter your quilt. I love all the different fabrics you picked up, and you'll have fun dreaming up some new projects to use them. ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. I love your mini and I'm glad you went for all the fabric. I'm sure you will find a good use for it all.

  6. Congratulations on being included in the show! Lovely quilt!
    Especially like the background fabrics you chose ..... love those type of fabrics, just hate to actually cut them up! 😊
    Those dark fabrics would probably stop me in my tracks too!
    Have fun using them!

  7. It's such a thrill to see your own work in a show, isn't it?! Congratulations on being a part of that event and bringing home such a great haul!

  8. Congrats on being in the show! I bet it was fun to see it hanging. I love seeing all the vendors at the big quilt shows and watching the demonstrations. Interacting with the vendors is so much fun and bringing home fabric is a bonus! Thanks for linking to Main Crush Monday!

  9. I have never had a piece in an International show - how fun for you!
