Fun, Fun, Fun!

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.

And here I am with Lynette Anderson.  I just love her designs and she is so generous with her free patterns on her blog. She was kind enough to take a picture with me and sign a couple of her patterns.  She told me to come back tomorrow and another of my favorite Australian designers would be there at her booth - Gail Pan.  Oh yes....I will be going back tomorrow.

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.
