Finally, I have the quilts ready. I'm just going to let them speak for themselves, they're all so lovely. I believe that I have all the names correct, but if not, my apologies. I tried to make sure that I had the proper information to credit each quilt artist. This is just a tiny little selection of quilts, and trying to get a good photo is hard, the lighting isn't optimal and of course it's swarming with people there.
Our friend Sherry's quilt! Woo hoo
Checkerboards and Chocolate Stars by Mary Kay Davis. She's also in the Neutrals

. I just loved these fish. This is on of two fish quilts I saw by Robin.
This piece was by Jennifer Mann of Oakland. The center black and white portion was made from one black and white African animal print.
, CA.. After the Rain. I loved the bee on this quilt, it was dimensional and kind of fuzzy. Very cool.
I love the story of this quilt. You should be able to enlarge that photo to read about it.
This piece was really amazing. This is the back.
This is the front. The front is much more black looking when I see it with my eyeballs, but the camera really picks up the thread colors. Isn't that interesting? It was quite black, at least to me anyway. Renee Haddidin

Halloween Haunts by Nadine Kirk
Jody Rusconi, Running with Scissors. She got a kick start, she says, from Jean Wells at Asilomar. Jody, it did make me smile!
This sweet otter quilt is by Kathy McNeil. It's called Finder's Keepers. I loved this quilt, I tried for some close ups, there is netting and shiny threads, but my pictures didn't turn out. Really lovely.
So that my friends, is my visit to PIQF.
