DK Quilt Guild: A place for quilters to gather, share ideas, projects, and to make the world a better place, one quilt at a time. Join us and share your thoughts, projects, questions, and tips. Quilters here are at many different levels of skill. Beginners and non-quilters are welcome, too!
Guess the Quilter~All these quilt artists appeared on TheQuiltShow.com with Alex Anderson & Ricky Tims in 2010. Can you guess their name from the quilt before their picture comes up?
The San Francisco Bay Area has many quilt shows. Most quilt shows are sponsored by local quilt guilds. There's a huge show Pacific International Quilt Festival or PIQF is held at the Santa Clara Convention Center every Autumn. This diary will showcase quilts from the various quilt shows, that I've attended. All the photos but one are mine. Have you attended many quilt shows? Entered any of your quilts? Do you prefer traditional designs? Modern? Appliqué?
Grab your comfy shoes and let's go to the quilt shows.
