Favorite Things Friday 8/5/11

One of my favorite things to do is go to a quilt show!  Not every quilt show - wouldn't have time to quilt then, LOL - but when a big one comes around locally, I'm there.

Last saturday, I went with my mother to see the Summer International Quilt Festival in Long Beach.  For us out west, this is the next best thing to going to Houston, cuz it's the Houston show on wheels!  It's not as big, the quilts aren't juried, but oh there are a lot of them!  And of course, vendors.  I was good - all I bought was thread and two stencils.  However there was a lot of fabulous fabric there - someday!

So to share, I thought I'd upload the eye candy I photographed that day on this favorite thing friday.  These are just a few of them.  You'll get an idea of what I like by what I picked to photograph from the hundreds they had.

Oh and there was a fabulous, fabulous Baltimore Quilt Exhibit - but it said no photography so I wasn't able to share those with you.  But they are indelibly printed in my brain.
If you're ever close to one - they have one in the spring and summer and fall - do try to go - you won't regret it.  PS:  this is where I saw the great O Canada exhibit  that I posted about earlier.  ENJOY!

Oh my goodness...they're all so beautiful - each and every one. However if I had to pick a favourite it would be the one that comes up in Picture 2 and three. Amazing!

Thanks for dropping by and linking them up. I feel like I almost over dosed on eye candy.
