Wisconsin Quilt Expo!

This weekend was the fifteenth Wisconsin Quilt Expo at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison. It's put on by Wisconsin Public Television and Nancy Zieman Productions and has become a significant regional show.


This was the third time I've attended.  The venue on the south side of Madison is easy to get to but I chose to take the coach bus trip on Friday coordinated by Buttons and Bolts, a local quilt shop.   Boarding began at 6:30 a.m. and we left promptly at 7 a.m.






I had three quilts in the show.





















Here are photo collages of some of the other 500+ quilts.





Anna is one of my Magpie friends


I voted for one of these for Viewer's Choice (but I can't remember which one!).



This quilt made me look again -- and laugh!


The vendor mall was extensive.  I bought what I needed and I bought more that I wanted!  
It was a long day!  We were all pretty weary when we boarded the bus at 4:45.  There was a dinner stop en route. We pulled into the quilt shop parking lot at 7:30 and I was home by 8:00.
