2018 Coastal Quilters Quilt Show


We spent a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Santa Barbara, California at the Coastal Quilters of Santa Barbara/Goleta quilt show. They sponsor a show every other year and I always mark my calendar so that I don’t miss out. I really can’t say enough good things about this show…it’s small, quaint, and in an incredible location. No matter what your style of quilting is, you will find amazing inspiration. I also look forward to the great vendors each time. But, I was disappointed that the guy who sells the Kai scissors was not there this year. A wonderful day trip to Santa Barbara draws an end to a fantastic weekend. Not looking forward to Monday!

Harvest of Colors


On Saturday, Greg and I headed up to Santa Barbara for the Coastal Quilters Annual Quilt Show. The drive from Los Angeles was a little grueling, but we made it there and the weather was beautiful. The quilts on display were an inspiring mix of traditional and modern quilts. The show layout was well planned and the guests all seemed to be enjoying themselves. I saw some fabulous quilts and even bought myself a new pair of scissors. I haven’t tried Kai scissors before and I thought it was time to give ’em a go and see if I like them. I’ll report back soon…
