MQS

I'm back from the quilt show and wanted to post a quick note. I met my sister Debbie in Kansas on Tuesday and we spent the next 3 days catching up with each other, viewing quilts, and shopping the vendor mall at the show.

This was the first visit to the show for both of us and the first time Debbie had entered a quilt at MQS. She won a Honorable Mention ribbon for her wall quilt Some Like it Hot - Frog Legs Cajun Style. Unfortunately you can't see Debbie's amazing quilting in this photo but you can go to her webshots album and see some close-ups.

I also had a chance to meet Judy in person for the first time - we chatted a while and took her over to see Debbie's quilt.

Thanks Pam but the quilt is all Debbie's - I had nothing to do with it. Debbie and I did have a great time - we feel fortunate to share an interest in quilting.
