    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.

    Working on a wholecloth quilt IS variety - but of course not in colors. It's the variety in structures created by the quilting patterns. I am completely addicted to it. But Each to their own!

    Oh, I just posted a question on whether it's a great show or not. Should have read the posts first. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I live south of Boston and might just make the drive up there! Thanks for the review!

    There's a Manchester in five of the six New England states...all but Rhode Island. It happens a lot up here.

    BTW, there is a basement type level of parking under the Radisson. When you go to the main ticket entrance, at least for yesterday, there was a man there who validated parking tickets so that it only cost $5 to park. Now for a picture. I only took a few. I can't find the proper transfer cord, so this is one I took with my phone -- from my camera.Name:  mail-2.jpeg

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    katkat1946, you are making me think that I missed a section, but I was sure I saw it all. Maybe I'm on quilt overload.

    I first saw this wedding quilt in the Trinity Valley Quilter's Guild show in Fort Worth TX w-a-y back there, maybe even in 1989 or 1990, even recalling exactly where it was hung in that show. I remember how it knocked everyone's socks off at the time! It's nice to see she is still showing it and entertaining a new generation of quilters.

    Thanks for the memory with your photo.
