Constructed without special rulers, the 19th Century Pineapple is a gentle introduction to hand sewing and harks back to the old-fashioned quilting bee. Great for first-time quilters or experienced hands who enjoy a portable project.

From 7:45 AM to 6:00 PM

 

Today we’re off to explore the Coachella Valley – Palm Springs, Palm Desert and more. The “snow birds”that abound this time of year have promised to share the hidden charms of the Coachella Valley.

Upon arrival in Palm Springs a local step-on guide will join us to offer a glimpse into Palm Springs today and yesterday. We will travel through the beautiful city of Palm Springs, California, and learn history and facts about the playground of the stars. Your entertaining guide will drive through the famous neighborhood of Las Palmas, regale you with stories and play a fun and often hilarious game of "Guess The Stars Homes." This area is comprised of all custom homes and boasts an amazing collection of fascinating architecture including the popular mid-century modern homes in such great demand today. During our tour we will see ~50 homes – some of them once belonged to Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley (2 homes in Palm Springs), Kirk Douglas, Leonardo DiCaprio, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Marilyn Monroe and more!

After our driving tour you’ll have time for a scatter lunch in downtown Palm Springs. Then we’re off to the Living Desert and Zoo in Palm Desert. Explore the expansive zoo and gardens via a Safari Tram. One could spend the day here, but today we’ll give you just a glimpse of the beauty of the Southwest deserts.

And, last but not least, we’ll stop at Monica’s Beads and Creations in Palm Desert. It’s a fabulous quilt store with beads! The selection of fabrics and patterns is extensive. You’ll surely find something here that simply must go home with you!

Note that the price of the trip includes admission to the Living Desert Garden and Zoo and the fee for our Mid Center Modern step-on guide."

Our first stop today will be at Quilt in a Day in San Marcos, CA. This is home base for the one and only - Eleanor Burns. You’ll have time to shop before and after her show taping where you’ll be in the audience. Eleanor will join us for lunch catered by Panera. You’ll be part of the audience as Eleanor tapes one of her shows where she demonstrates her techniques to make quilt construction fun, fast, and easy! She always offers some specials to her audience so shopping is in order!

After lunch we’re off for a behind-the-scenes tour at Quilters Paradise where they produce most of the pre-fused, laser cut kits that you’ve learned to love! You’ll have time to shop some of the many products that theyprovide to quilt shops around the country.

As we return to Ontario, we’ll stop in Temecula to visit Primitive Gatherings. This is a wonderful shop that has something for everyone – wool kits and wool to add to your stash, primitive fabrics, reproductions, and a wide selection of bright, contemporary-to-modern fabrics. If you’re familiar with Primitive Gatherings at the show, imagine that booth x 10!
