International Quilt Festival - Friday - Days Two and Three

I had another two wonderful days at the festival. On Saturday for lunch with a group of Illinois Pickles who are members of the Pickle Road Studio Yahoo group. I have been a member over a year and met Mark last year at the festival. This year I was able to meet more members and it is so good to put a face to a name. This is a great group of people and you may want to check out the group and Marks magazine. Here is the link for the group.

I spent way to much money, but I have stocked up on fabric dyes and a whole bunch of new toys. I will be taking photos and showing you them over the next week or two. Yes I have that many new toys.

Here are the links to my webshots for the photos of quilts the past three days.

Once again I tried to take a photo of the information card with each quilt so the artist is given credit.

If you did attend the festival I would love to hear from you. Did anyone else notice how may quilts were Art Quilts this year? I love Art Quilts and I am hoping to make more this year then in the past. I do love making traditional quilts but I just want to expand my skills.

Quilting Kim - Your are welcome! I am glad you enjoy the photos and the tip. I can not remember who did what quilt after seeing so many so I started taking a photo of the information card to remember and it is also good when I post the photo so the artist gets credit for their work.

Joanna van - You are welcome! I love the tumbling boy quilt too.

Beth - You are welcome! Life is just not fair because I want to go to Paducah too. Maybe next year you can come here and stay at my house and we can go to IQF together.

Helen - You are welcome! Wait until you see the photos from Saturday and todays.

Wow, Debbi-- I feel as though I've been along with you! Great!! Thanks for the photo sharing... incredible art quilts!! My husband and I were in Rosemont last Fall, we stayed there while visiting out nephews, we ate the best pizza at Giordano's! Are you familiar with this pizza? Can't wait to see your new toys.
