We left for Houston on Wednesday and arrived home this afternoon. Two friends and I went to the International Quilt Festival for the first time.
I am tired and have some sore leg muscles but thought I would make a short post. The convention center was a huge place and we did a lot of walking and standing. There were almost 1000 vendors. Many did not seem to be quilt related. If I were an art quilter, perhaps I would appreciate the variety of “stuff” available.
We each took a different class. I chose hand appliqué. Here are some of my materials at 9 AM at the beginning of class.
Here is my block at 5 PM at the end of class. Notice all the pins in the ribbon star. None is stitched down.
There is MUCH that has to be done before this block is complete. I hope this is not headed to be another UFO. That seems to be a big problem with taking classes. Do you ever finish the project after you leave?
Tomorrow I will share some more about the show.
