Wow, that sounds like a wonderful day.
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Saw them in Escondido, Ca a couple of years ago--they were gr8. Hope to go to another of their seminars when they come back to California. :-D
I live about an hours drive from Alex's mountain cabin. A couple of years ago she gave a four hour class close by on star blocks from her book. The one with the blue and yellow star quilt on the cover. Can't remember the book name. We sewed, told stories, laughed and had a great time with her. I'd certainly do it again if I ever get the chance.
