Heading to QuiltCon - Trying to Get Ready!

Are you going to QuiltCon West in Pasadena next week?  Well actually it starts on Thursday - but I'm going to drive and will be leaving on Sunday or Monday.  The weather forecast from Reno to Pasadena is spectacular!  A dry week or 10 days - something that hasn't happened with El Nino bringing in storms every 3 or 4 days.  Thought I would drive so that I could visit with friends along the way and on the way back.  On the way back I'll be in Visalia, Ca (Central Valley) visiting friends for a few days and then head up to Carmel to visit with more friends and do a little birding before returning to Reno.

I am volunteering at QuiltCon so I will be helping with setup on Wednesday and then working in one of the classrooms on Friday.  Another reason to get there a little earlier than is required by the event itself.  

This will be my third of 3 QuiltCons!  Don't know if I will make it to Savannah next year.  I really understand when people decide not to attend because it's expensive, it's far away and it takes a lot of time away from home.  I do have to report that it's exciting, uplifting, you will learn a lot and meet or re-meet your quilting friends from all over the world.  It's so nice to meet a person face-to-face.  And the quilt show has been amazing, as well as the vendors.

It will be particularly fun to help with set-up of the show on Wednesday because I have a quilt in the show!  Not sure how that happened but I greatfully accepted their offer to put the quilt in the show and off it went.

I named it Almost Purr-fect, partially for the Cattitude fabric that I used and second because I am at best an o.k. quilter.  Without further adieu, here it is:

I hope to see many friends, both old and new, in Pasadena.
Happy Valentine's Day!

Talk to you soon,



  1. The quilt looks fabulous.....I'm so glad it's in the show. So sad we don't get to hang out this year. Have fun!!!
