Yes I am. I've barely turned on my computer this week. It's been a busy one! I thought October would settle down, silly me. But guess what I did today! For the second time in my life, I went to a quilt show. And boy was it a good one. Put on by the Great Lakes African American Quilters Network, do you want to see some pictures? I promise you there are lots more over on my flickr, in a set.
Here are some that had no names attached that we could see.
There was also a room of vintage quilts.
Marcia Derse was there! Her fabrics caught my eye, I stopped at the table, and saw her name and said "hey, I KNOW YOU!" Meaning, of course, that I had seen her fabrics all over blogland, not that I knew her. She understood. What a great gal she is! And her fabric is just gorgeous!
Ok, now a few of the quilts, with the artist statement - can't believe I remembered to get those!
One of my favorites, the detail on this was incredible.
The quilting on this was INCREDIBLE.
There are many more over on flickr, I didn't want to make this blog post 3 pages long. WHAT an inspiring quilt show. These ladies are marvelous! I'm already looking forward to next year.
I get to stay home in my jammies tomorrow, hopefully I'll get around to all your blogs AND work on my new quilt design - although after the quilt show today, it's looking kind of washed out - vintage sheets, kind of cottagey, but after this show I'm craving color! I hope you enjoyed the show too!
PS - I'm going to disable anonymous comments - I'm getting a lot of spam, although it's not making it to the blog, it's still annoying. We'll see if that takes care of it!
