In the past, this quilt show was held near the Burbank (aka Bob Hope) Airport. A few years ago, it moved to Pasadena. Last year the show did not occur at all as a different, big craft show had just been at the new venue within weeks of its regular time, which was always in March. There may have been other reasons too, of which I'm not aware. This year, it was scheduled for September. We had great expectations that it would be the same as in the past, though we knew it was only being held over two days, where in the past it was three or four days. Sadly, there seemed to be far fewer vendors, and maybe even a smaller number of quilts than in past years.
The boutique had an impressive amount of boxes of fabric sorted by color fabric for $2/pound. To my eyes, it was all maybe 1980s-90s fabrics or older, perhaps stuff that had been donated to the guild by deceased members or members who just wanted to clear old stuff from their stashes. We didn't take the time to go through any of it - our own stashes perhaps need to be down-sized!!
We enjoyed what quilts were there and I'll now post the few pictures of some I especially enjoyed. The following photos were all taken at the 2017 Glendale Quilt Show.
My only purchase at the show aside from admission and parking, was for a half-yard of this fabric:

After the show we went to the Bear Pit BBQ. I'd never been there before, and I enjoy BBQ. It was a nice meal, and tasted great! Then we headed home, Panda dropped me off and I took a nap. I was tired, having ridden in a car for 10 hours the day before. I sure slept well last night! I developed an eye problem while in Arizona and think that is tiring me some as well. I saw an eye doc while in AZ and he diagnosed it as posterior vitreous detachment - it will heal eventually. Very thankful it wasn't a related tear or retinal detachment, that would have been more serious. I do have an annoying small dark floater which I hope eventually disappears or lightens. It's like looking at a gnat with your peripheral vision :/
