Love the beach destination quilt shows. San Luis Obispo has alot to offer. Night before set up, vendor friends and I took the trolley downtown to their bustling Farmers' Market. The streets alive with garden goodies, enticing foods and entertainment at every corner. The next evening discovering Los Osos a nearby beach town and then the following night . . Avila Beach . . my favorite. It was robust with that beachy energy that warms you and fills your spirit with all that is good. I wish the show was again next week . . i'm ready to go back.
Oh and then there was the show itself. So well done. I ran around during a break or two trying to get pictures. Not a totally successful venture. Many times there are bodies in front of the quilts admiring the stitches. But I snapped enough for a little slide show below.
Barbara Guerena made up our Lollipop Hill Pattern in her own lively colors. Lively enough for that blue ribbon. First place in the machine applique category. It was magnificent. You will see it again in the slide show. Congratulations Barbara! Love what you did with this.
