The International Quilt Festival was this past week, and I was lucky enough to get to go again. I love going to that show! It’s especially great because I get to spend time with my very good friend, as well as with others I don’t see at any other time. Did I mention that I love going? 😉 This year my sister was also able to go, but our schedules didn’t mesh too well. Still, we did get to see each other. 🙂 I won’t post any photos of the show quilts, since they are posted in several other places online. However, they were — as always — spectacular and breathtakingly gorgeous!
This year I only took one class, a machine quilting forum, where several teachers each gave a presentation and the class members rotated from one to another. It was pretty good, but of course none of the teachers had time to get into much detail; it’s the nature of that sort of class.
Finally, I bought this kit that I’d had no intention of getting. However, I really love New York Beauty blocks, and this setting was a bit different from the usual. In addition, the fabric choices — pastels — are quite unusual for this design. There are also some crystals to add to the finished quilt — when I finally get it finished. 😉
