    World Quilt Show

    I just got back from the World Quilt Show in Manchester, MA. It was great! The quilts are inspiring, and the fabric available is amazing. Bought enough for a couple new projects.

    You know, I never know whether I've crossed into MA or I'm still in NH -- lol. I call it being on NH time. I drive 40mph in the 50mph zones and drive the cars behind me crazy.

    Well since Manchester is our largest city, we're not about to hand it over to our neighbors 25 miles to the south.

    And because there IS a Manchester in Massachusetts, we wouldn't want folks to get lost looking for the quilt show in the future. Best to be aware of where you are at all times, especially if you're from 'away'.

    Did you see borntohandquilt's wholecloth entry? I believe she has one in this show.

    Manchester NH (!) is a fine city with a great airport - in case anyone needs to know. I looked at every quilt. There were a few wholecloth entries. I don't know how someone works on a project like that. I need variety. BTW, I guess what confuses me about NH/MA is that I have to go thru the toll both and change from I89 to I93 to I293 -- just seems like I'm changing states, too -- lol.

    I just got home from there tonight, too! It's about a 4-5 hr drive for me but I had great company - a friend and fellow quilter!!! I think many of the vendors appreciated that we made the trip (LOL). As always, the quilts were beautiful, one gasp and a wow after another. I took lots of pictures - can they be shared? The hotel/convention center is lovely and easy to access from the interstate; they have a great restaurant on the premisis. AND there were lots of shops to visit along the way. Some 'old' favorites in Montpelier and Bethel VT and Henniker, NH plus a new one (to us) in Claremont, NH.
