    I was at the show too. For the first time I got to sew on a long arm machine. It was awesome. Now I want one even more. I'll try to post some pictures. I was so impressed with the talent there.

    The quilting on this was so pretty

    Thanks for letting me share a few of the pictures I took. Now I really want to go to the quilt show in Des Moines. I'm hooked.

    the quilts are beautiful.

    i've always wondered what drugs Jane was on to make that quilt. many of the illegal substances of today were common place back then.

    my favorite is quilt 65 - i've always loved that paper piece pattern.

    I'm glad I don't have to pick a favorite. I found one and said, "That's the best!" only to find I was saying it again while looking at the next photo. Wonderful show! Thank you so much for sharing your day with us!

    (I always hate it when the shows over! )

    They gave us a ballot when we went in to vote for our favorite quilt. I couldn't begin to choose.

    You are so right about the long arms. After I have tried them I'll never look at my Juki the same.
