We had lunch with my Magpie friend Anna. We saw fellow guild members. A couple of people greeted me -- they recognized my selvedge tote bag or had seen my blog.
There were more quilts on display than previous years. There was only one no-photos exhibit (antique red-and-green quilts). There weren't as many vendors, but that didn't stop me from shopping and acquiring fabric. Just 29 yards that included batiks, nice-quality homespuns, and two half-yard pieces of South African indigo shweshwe. Oh, yes, and some black-and-white FQs and a couple of lime greens.
Here are photos of some of the quilts that caught my eye. I did not get attributions for all of them.
Northwoods Awakening by Ann and Steve Loveless of Michigan. (Website) It's 25 feet long, going from a photograph to a quilt.
