    Went to the International Quilt Show in Rosemont, IL this evening for the preview night.

    Saw some of the quilts. Met the winner of Best in Show...Will post photo.
    Will also post honorable mentions and others...

    Went thru some of the vendors. Felt the fabric, coveted the fabric, bought some fabric...

    Going back tomorrow. Can't wait... :D

    Wow, that one with the rocks is amazing! Kind of a boring subject matter, who would have thought to use rocks... but it turned out beauiful!

    All of them are just amazing. My particular favorite, though, was the rocks. As it was mentioned before, who would have thought of doing rocks? They were beautiful. Just amazing.
