We made it to the International Quilt Festival and here is my quilt on display. What a treat it was for me to see it hanging for all to see. I had fun telling people it was my quilt and answering questions.
I was very surprised when I got the show catalog to see it was a "featured quilt". Not sure what that means but was great to see it pictured in the show catalog.
I watched about 1 1/2 hours worth of demonstrations and could have spent the afternoon watching the professional teachers/quilters demonstrate techniques new to me or new products they have designed. I plan to sit and watch more tomorrow.
One other special treat I had today was a visit to the EQ7 booth and met the gentleman who wrote the software program. He gave me a lesson in designing motifs and adding them to a quilt border. I will be playing with that tonight.
All in all it was a great day and I can not wait to go back tomorrow.
