Glendale Quilt Guild Quilt Show—Ripple Effect

Fall is in the air, so it must be quilt show season…it seems like there is a bunch of inspiration every weekend, this time of year! This past weekend, we scooped up our friend Nancy and drove to the Pasadena Convention Center for the Glendale Quilt Guild quilt show, Ripple Effect. There was a Guild boutique, lots of incredible quilts, and even a special exhibit from Men Who Quilt. We had a great time…can’t wait for the next show!

Conejo Valley Quilters present Vintage to Vanguard


It’s that time of year again when there are plenty of quilting events. I was very pleased to be involved with the Vintage to Vanguard show in Camarillo, CA. The show was held on the Channel Islands University campus. Many of the buildings belonged to Camarillo State Hospital, which is said to be haunted. While I was going through nursing school many years ago, I had to opportunity to visit the campus before the State Mental Hospital was slated to close.
Great location as well as so many pretty quilts…but, no ghosts.
