    Smile WooHoo I have arrived in Madison!!

    Just got into town for the Wisconsin Quilt Expo here in Madison. This is my 3rd year attending and my first of attending all 3 days! They are full days too...I don't even have lunch scheduled in tomorrow. I brought books for Jennifer Chiaverini to sign and also one for Marie Bostwick! I have signed up for 5 lectures and one Sit and Sew. I also want to spend some time at the Quilt to Give project working on some of their charity quilts. Oh, and I can't forget the Stage presentations.

    There are hundreds of quilts at the Quilt Contest Exhibit to oggle and take pics of. Oh, I don't know if I'll have enough time for it all! Just going to walk my feet right off!!

    I will be there on Friday. It is about a two and a half hour drive for me, but my sister lives in Madison so we will go to the show together.

    I loved it last year. Have fun!

    Take pictures of quilts for us! Madison is such a beautiful city even without the Quilt Expo and I do envy you.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I have attended every year since this show began and it seems to get bigger every year. Bring you lunch as they usually run out of food pretty early in the day. It is always worth going to if it's just to stop and see Nancy at her booth.

    Will be there tomorrow. First time doing a bus trip from LQS - will see how that goes! Taking a class in morning then rest of day for viewing and buying. Always bring a lunch - in the years I have been going they still don't do the food well, IMHO.

    I wish I could go. Last time I was there for the Midwest Horse Fair. Madison is fantastic at organizing events! Smoky's on University Ave. has the best steaks in the state. Hope everyone has fun, takes lots of photos of the quilts, and drives safely.
