    How many people got to go? I did and I had a wonderful time. But I am exhausted. Can't wait to go back again .... :-)

    I wish I could have gone! I've been following the progress of the AAQI booth. They've sold two of my little quilts! Did you see the booth?

    Please show us some of the great stuff that you bought!
    Reading, cooking, sewing in retirement! Heaven!

    I took a lot of photos of art quilts but I didn't get the names of all the artists. Quilts Festival rules says you can't post pix without artist's names so I don't want to cause any problems for Patrice. She's got enough on her plate now.

    All the quilts were amazing. I used a scooter this year because of knee problems and it was the best money I ever spent because for the first time I was able to see every single one of the quilts exhibited.

    Got to wait until tomorrow to post pictures of the goodies I bought. No way I'm letting DH see the obscene amount of loot I brought home!

    How does it compare to the AQS show in Paducah? I go to that one, but might think about flying to the market next year.

    I went on Thursday with my guild...as a group with another guild on a bus (we're only 2 hours away). It was my first trip and I was pretty overwhelmed by the vendor area. But it didn't stop me from buying a bunch of stuff! Had a wonderful but tiring day. Even got to see Eleanor Burns, Alexander Anderson, and Jodi Barrows.

    The quilts were beautiful. As our guild president said...she thought she could have been quite competitive with some of the quilts....the ones in the 4H Group! I looked at some of those quilts and couldn't believe what I was seeing. Some of them apparently will be on display at the Texas Quilt Museum after it opens this month. It's in LaGrange in a historic building downtown.

    I went Thursday and I was able to go the week before to Market with my sister on Saturday. Market was nice just to see the booths the shops see and I kind of got an idea of the layout so I was prepared for the crowds at festival. I am in a wheelchair full time so it is a little harder to maneuver in the crowds and I was glad to know what the layout was. I am hooked now for sure. Being a new quilter and living here I will be a regular from now on.
