I ran out of room on my memory card, so I could not take all of the phots that I would have liked... I specifically did not take some of some of the big winners, because I knew they would be on Flickr & they are on the website. So go take a look, those photos are far better that the ones I would have take any way... And they included some that I did not even consider taking - I had seen the before or they were not my thing... Or I completely missed them... That is why I love to check out Flickr & the like to see what other people thought enough about to photograph. I sometimes think that I went to a different quilt show.
As an aside I have a funny story... I was walking (raher briskly) past a couple of "older" ladies who were looking at a quilt by a Japanese entrant. The quilter used Sunbonnet Sue. The one ladt asked the other why she used Sunbonnet Sue... Her answer - I guess the same reason why so many Americans use Japanese styled fabrics... (Not the exact words, but the gist!)
I got to meet up with two bloggers Sophie & Vicki. I think I look better in Vicki's photo... I suffer from too many cameras syndrome...
For better or worse, here is the one that Mr. Calico Cat took.
Don't bother enlarging it, Mr. Calico Cat did not hold the camera still. We all look better small. :o)
I had a bit of "startstruckesness" but I don't have photographic evidence, I am not that bad... Besides if I were, I would have deleted them to get pictures of the quilts.
Anyway I saw/met Mark Lipinski - the magazine guy, Alex Anderson, Mariane Fons, Paula Nadelstern, Helen Godden, Ami Simms, Frieda Adkins & Sally Collins.
