I had every intention of finishing my mini "Tilt Shift" before heading to Pasadena for QuiltCon. The top had been done for months but I just couldn't wrap my head (or heart) around the remaining tasks so I didn't.
Instead I left knowing that I'd return on Monday night with 3 days to quilt, bind and attach the sleeve before delivering it ready to hang at our local show. When I created my 2016 FAL Q1 list, (blogged here) I knew if nothing else on it was finished at least this one would be.

The other two quilts that I entered in the general exhibit as a member of PVQA were thankfully ready to go.
So much for a bakers dozen 2016 FAL Q1 goal - with Tilt Shift done, that leaves 12 unfinished for next quarter but I think I'll lower the bar for Q2. It's time to LINK up finishes.
Be sure to check out the group effort to keep this wonderful event continuing - follow the Facebook page and @finishalong on IG.
Here's are some photos of the quilts made by my SBAMQG mates (titles and makers found here)
The layout had the best flow I've ever experienced with an artistic eye for placement and grouping.
I borrowed back Perspective from Haley and she posed for a photo with it while viewing the show.

38th annual is an impressive run of successful shows and 500+ quilts mind blowing. It was interesting and exhausting to have volunteered to breakdown two shows on back to back weekends.
These lovely vintage treasures came from the Bargain Garden - one of my favorite features of the show. My new swag bag tote came in handy.

Some lucky person won the Opportunity Quilt made by Pam Rocco. I'm the lucky one though since I get to learn from and with her on a regular basis.

I believe next year the dates conflict with QuiltCon so I'll be Savannah and I'll have to miss out.
