San Diego Quilt Show 2010 Part One

Looking out from the San Diego Convention Center.
The Ballpark is to the right and the Gaslamp area
 is straight ahead.

The 29th Annual San Diego Quilt Show

Wednesday I was fortunate enough to have a girls night out and go to the preview of the San Diego Quilt Show. Normally when I have gone to the quilt show there is a lot of ladies and its hard to see everything. This time I went to the preview night which is a charity event . 100 per cent of the ticket price goes to TIP

Tip is a Trauma Intervention Program in San Diego. Tip has trained volunteers that respond to emergency traumatic situations in the San Diego community. They are called in by the police to help family members in traumatic situations within 20 minutes of a serious event. If you would like more information on this worthwhile program

Contact TIP at

 Trauma Intervention Program

                            Quilters love Color! 

This is a really pretty quilt that was hanging on
the outside of one of the vendors booth.

Little Stitches booth

Heart to Hand is a great booth that has
 lots of wools and wool applique patterns.
 I always look for Heart to Hand at Quilt Shows.

Kimberly Graf did a great job on this quilt  

                                                                            This was an interesting choice
                                                                              of colors and shapes.

It was hard to take close ups of some quilts because there was tape at waist
level that made you stay back from the
quilts. If your a quilter you know Don't
touch the Quilts!

                      It is always fun to check out the vendors

                      This is a part of a quilt I took a close up of.
               I loved the sweet colors they used.
