    Rhonda it was very sweet of you to share your time @ the Quilt Show with us. Thank You for that. I go to Houston every Fall for the big Show so that just whetted my appetite. LOL And thanks for the new word "twicks." I like that! And it fits so perfect.LOL The Quilts were all just fantastic! A lot of talent there for sure. I honestly could not choose a favorite.

    Rhonda, thank you so much for posting the pictures. I was disappointed that I didn't get to go. Thanks to your kindness, I got to see the quilts anyway. You are the best! Thank you again. :-)

    You're welcome everyone! I sometimes look at people's posting of quilt shows and they show down a whole row of quilts and I so want to see each one up close.so I had that in mind when I went. And some I wanted to see the closeups. I had you all in mind when I took the pics. I am so much more aware of details like the FMQ designs than I ever was before. I wouldn't have looked twice at the FMQ before because I can't do it but I have a better appreciation of it now thanks to you all.

    I am so glad I could share this with you all. I got a new camera a few months ago and sometimes when I take a pic it comes out fuzzy. I think I don't wait for it to refocus. so I was trying really hard not to come home with out of focus pics!! I would have been so upset! The one with the orange stars is a bit out of focus but not too bad.

    Hope you all get lots of good ideas from these people's hard work and talent!! And aren't they all talented!!!!

    To be good enough to enter the Quilt Show, folks have to have a degree in talent. Isn't it up to the quilter to decide on a pattern, fabric, threads, embellishments, paints, etc. Does anyone know the percentage of the Shows that have a themes?

    You're welcome Tigger I missed Don also so I guess I didn't connect with anyone as Wendy couldn't go either but I still enjoyed the show!! And it was the first one my DH went to also so that was fun. I'd only been to one other large quilt show before and that was a few years ago. I go to our local one but it is only about 30 or 40 quilts. Nothing like the bigger cities. But I enjoy all the quilts!! I have pics of past quilt shows here in Salem I did think about posting some of those. They are several years ago but looking at quilts isn't about being in the present time so maybe I will pull those out sometime soon and share.

    Rhonda, please do post those older guilt show photos when you have time. It is so inspiring (esp since I don't get out much) to see what others are doing. Thanks for all your time on these.
