    Fun Day at the NW Quilting Expo in Portland, OR

    Had a great time on Friday at the NW Quilting Expo. I went with Wine Woman and we ran into most of the WOMBATS. Great seeing all of you!
    Also met some "new" friends. So nice to put faces with names.
    Great meeting Charisma. Her quilts are even more stunning in person. If you have a quilt top quilted by her, you have a true piece of art!
    We met Deann. Such a sweet lady! I hope we can convince her to come on our retreats.
    Ugly Cook was helping in Margaret Miller's booth. Angleplay is now on my list of "must learn". All I can say is Wow! I know the pictures won't do them justice, but I am sharing so you can get an idea.

    Thank you for posting the photos. I am sure they are more gorgeous in person but they are outrangeously wonderful in the photos. I never heard of angle play.

    I went on Saturday saw many stunning &amazing quilts there are so many talented quilters! Saw the angle play display have wanted tokake one of them but right now I have so many rulers and books to make other quilts I could not justify the expense this year maybe next year. So great that you got to meet other quilters that are on the board here. Saw a lot of my fellow Westside Quilter Guild members and saw Sue Hausers awesome red/black/white double wedding ring quilt that Sandy Pnnington custom quilted for her. This was my first year I was able to attend and I am looking forward to attending next year

    A couple of my friends went Friday, and by Saturday when we met up with about 15 other friends to sew for the day at a fire station, she had made a DVD of 300 pics of the show. How nice to see so many quilts since I could not go Hope you had fun.

    "Great meeting Charisma. Her quilts are even more stunning in person. If you have a quilt top quilted by her, you have a true piece of art!"

    I too was thrilled to meet a visit with her. Had a great time hearing about adventures in Leavenworth and "picking her fantastically talented brain" regarding her Innova. The expo was fabulous and the quilts were amazing. 248 photos- and that just of the ones my mother in law and I liked....was truly a day filled with "eye candy". Can't wait for MQX West next month.

    Thanks Charisma!

    Also...huge thanks to feline fanatic for all her advise regarding long arm choices...I did a little practicing on the Innova per your suggestions and it is a fantastic machine. Now just have to decide by the middle of October whether to take the leap and change brands.

    Exciting stuff!

    The Angle Play blocks were wonderful. I was so pleased to see the whole display of them. Now I want to get back to designing some quilts using angle play.

    And it was great meeting so many of you!
