You know I love October for the Holiday, and for the fabulous cool Fall weather, but October in Des Moines, Iowa also means the American Quilter’s Society Show and in conjunction with that, our local Des Moines Area Quilt Guild show. Yesterday was opening day, and I took a day of vacation from work and headed on over. I ran into some blog friends…
Had lunch with a local quilty friend, Tricia, who is taking classes at the show every. single. day. Lucky girl.
and soaked in the sights of beautiful quilts and inspiration everywhere! AQS allows photos but asks that they be used for personal use only and not shared online. I’d love to share the quilt love, but I don’t want to get in trouble. If you get the opportunity to attend any of these International juried quilt shows, I highly recommend it.
Now, on to the Halloween Party. I haven’t gotten much of my own sewing done this week, what with skipping off to quilt shows, etc. But I want to send you to a friend’s website to see the totally ghoulish and freaky foundation patterns she is developing along with her family’s input… When this quilt is finihsed, she’s going to have the coolest Halloween Quilt on the web!
