Quilt Show: San Diego People of Color Quilt Guild

Went to my first  San Diego People of Color Quilt Guild Quilt Show.  There are around 16 members, boy do they know how to put on a show!

They took over a large room at the library, then had a vendor in a smaller room...  I didn't take enough photos...

First there were two ladies sitting at the welcoming table.  A guest book to sign, then they had fabric business card holders - we were to pick one to take.  Then there was a bowl ready to accept donations.

In the hallway, they had stacked examples of charity quilts they had made - with a note on where they were to be distributed.

In the show room we were awed by the display of quilts!  I noticed several had been quilted by my friend, so that is when the camera came out...

This is the same double 4-patch design used for my Put a Little Love in Your Quilt Blog hop Heart Quilt.  So beautiful pieced in this color way,  and the quilting makes it really shine!

I got to see this quilt when it was in the quilting frame.  She used a ruler to do the initial curves, then did the swirl and feathers free hand!

 The hanging quilt on the left is the opportunity quilt - tickets were $1 each! My fingers are crossed for this beauty!

A beautiful quilt made in honor of someone.

Wish I had taken more photos...

They were also selling fabric members had donated.  The fabric chair had $1 fat quarters arranged by color folded in clear boxes.  She made two different sizes $4 and $8 of jelly rolls put together with fabric and colors.  There were a few $3 yard and two yard cuts of fabric too.  Very, very nice.  I bought a few fat quarters for a friend in quilting class who has not been feeling well.

So this is an event to look for next year to return to be inspired again!  Very glad I found out about it this year!


  1. Those hand-quilted half feathers are perfect for the four patches! I'm glad you were able to get such detailed photos of that. Looks like a really neat exhibition :)

    1. Thanks Louise! It as a really nice morning! Great inspiration.
