As I walked on those plush red carpets today I was prompted to think just how lucky we are to have this festival. Karey Patterson Bresenhan and Nancy O'Bryant Puentes we thank you for giving us this fabulous gift.
Its a great time to visit the quilt exhibition during Market, most people are buying and selling and the Quilt pavilion was empty. We did a little of the buying stuff. (of course) we need to make our contribution.
Each year, I'm astounded at the innovation of the quilt exhibitors. Trends come and go and there seems to be a lot of thread painted quilts this year.
My humble observations see more machine pieced and quilted quilts from Japan, and not as many quilts from Europe (other than their exhibition)
