    Wow, that is just about the time I will be coming through Madison! I can't believe I can time my trip to hit a quilt show! I would love to meet up. For me it will probably be Saturday. I will be leaving Chicago on Friday & don't know how long it takes to get from Chicago to Madison.

    Marlys, from Chicago to Madison would probaly take ABOUT 3 hours. Course depending on Where in Cicago, traffic, and WE always take a wrong turn somewhere, so it akes an extra half hour!!! It would be so cool to meet ya!

    Since I could only afford one day, if I go I will try for Saturday too, seems to be the day most of you will get to be there!

    Hello,

    I am from northern wisconsin but won't be able to make the Quilt Expo... it is on my 'to-do' list.

    But an FYI - there is a quilt exhibit at the Milwaukee Art Museum that I plan on taking in when I am in the area in August. Here is the link

    http://www.mam.org/american_quilts/

    It is running through Aug 6. I think my girl friend and I will be going the next time I am in the area.

    If everyone has been there before, there are steps leading up to second floor right by the front windows of the Alliant Center... (at least they were there last year! LOL)
    Let's pick time to meet there at the stairs, so we can at least meet, and then anyone who wants to or can do lunch, we will grab bite...
    How does that sound to everyone?

    Let's post classes that we are taking also...I have - On Saturday
    9-12 Applique workshop
    1:00 Quilt as Desired
    2:00 Study of Color

    Since you have classes, are we meeting at noon? I think the sign is a great idea!!! The group of us that are meeting in Shipshewana are just going to pin a square of our favorite fabric to our shirt. Would that work for us, too?

    Noon sounds good to me!!

    I will make up a sign... I wouldn't be able to choose JUST ONE fabric, so I would probably "list" to one side with all the "favorite fabrics" on one side of me!! :lol: :lol:

    I know what you mean! But since my car will be full on the way out there, I have to travel light - so one square is what I will do (maybe 2)! I will look for your sign at noon on Saturday. What time does it open in the morning? I will probably come then and "browse" just a bit. So if anyone wants to meet me earlier, let me know!
