My way to view a quilt show.

During lunch today, I found my quilt hanging in the quilt show:


I guess they were afraid that viewers might follow instructions so they hung it too high for anyone but a pro basketball player to reach.

I told the story behind the quilt:


It involved a Russian visa application...

While I was looking at the quilts, I found one that was quilted by my buddy Teri Lucas:


She is one talented lady and I wish she were here with me.  I fear, though, that this quilt show might not be big enough for the two of us.

I had very little time to visit the show floor, because I spent most of my day listening to one of the most wonderful sounds in the world:

The purr of a room full of Sweet Sixteens!

I get to do this all over again tomorrow.  Sadly, Saturday will be my last day at the show.  I fly home on Sunday, to arctic temperatures.  I don't like the thought of traveling for 6 hours and dropping 80*F.

Winter is tough; I am not.

The girls and I that went to the show that that quilt was a hoot. Figured we would all need to make something like that for our rooms.
