Thursday at international quilt festival

Yikes, a cold front moved in overnight and it was cold and windy this morning. Good thing we didn't have to be outside long. We spent the first part of the morning looking at the gorgeous quilts. Here are both some winners and some I just liked.


This one is called Exposed by Jeanne Pfister

Tired by Teri McHale

Life in the city by Sheila Frampton-Cooper

Three Wee Figs by Daphne Greig

Maynard by David Taylor

Sharon Schamber with Phoebe in front of her prize winning quilt Crimson Promises. Sharon is sort of a neighbor of mine from Payson, AZ. She said it took her over 2000 hours to make this quilt.

Really "Wild" Flowers, Second Season by Sharon L Schlotzhauer

Refracted Lily by Gloria Hansen

Fiona, Phoebe, and me at the SAQA booth working.

At the end of the day there was a meet and greet at the SAQA booth and I got to meet some of the people I hear about and some of my friends from Facebook. It really was fun putting names to faces and making new friends. I think tomorrow Fiona and Phoebe will get to meet Jaime Fingal's girls.
