The Preview Party at the San Diego Quilt Show this evening was a hugh success. A delightful evening that allowed time to liesurely view all the quilts, as wel as shop in the spectacular vendor booths. This special evening was also a fundraiser for the Michaelle House, a non-profit that makes a difference in the lives of many in San Diego.
This year’s SDQS is an exciting show with a large variety of quilts, from traditional, contemporary, whimsical, and artistic. All, are beautiful. And, there are many exhibits within this show.
This show runs Thursday – Saturday and is held at the San Diego Convention Center. While I’ll be writing more about this show in the near future, I do want to share some insights about it now. And, if you’ve been following me lately, you’ll understand I’m searching for my muse. So, I must confess I attended the SDQS wondering if I could find my muse at this show.
I saw many inspiring quilts, delightful vendors with fantastic fabrics, supplies, patterns and various items that we all need.
As my previous muse was a cat, and my theme this week is cats, I want to share with you some insight about this show, through the eyes of a cat lover. But I must admit that there are many delightful quilts on display. So many beautiful quilts, that I suspect most participants will no even realize that there was a single quilt with a cat motif. But for me, the quilts with cats remind me so much of my muse, my heart was drawn to these beautiful quilts.
To point how how easy it might be to overlook a quilt at the SDQS with a cat theme, I’m wondering how many realized the above quilt has a delightful applique block with a cat? Yes, this beautiful applique quilt also includes a block with a delightful cat. This quilt was made by Lorraine Jaskot, of San Diego, CA.
