Autumn has arrived and so has the season of quilt shows. The Sierra Quilt Guild's show at the fairgrounds was quite lovely. I tried the "Quilts of Forist Lane" in Merced. It is a very beautiful show. Since it is outside in a custom neighborhood with grand trees, it is majestic, but at the mercy of the weather. I had a challenge with the wind setting up, but I perservered and ended up with a good experience. I went to "Quilting in the Garden" at the Alden Lane Nursery in Livermore on Sunday. I really enjoyed myself. There were inspirational quilts and booths.
I am looking forward to the Independance Hall Quilt Show October 11-13th! The shop will be open Friday and Saturday as well as having our booth in the show at Ironstone in Murphys. We will not have the shop open on Sunday even though we will still be vending at Ironstone. I hope to see many of you there! Here are some pictures from this weekend.
