We are about to leave for the second day here at the AQS show, and there is still a lot to take in. I looked at the ground floor quilts at the convention center yesterday, as well as the antique quilts at the Rotary. I haven't been to the upper floor to see my friend, Kay's quilt, bit will go there this morning to see her interview in front of the quilt at 10:30.
We have to leave the house in a minute, so I will only tell you that there will be a slide show posted later today or tomorrow.
Here are just a couple of my favorites so far.
Until later!!

3-2-1- AWAY!

Yesterday, I finished quilting the last customer quilt before we leave for Paducah. A lovely tee shirt quilt made by an adoring Grandma for her granddaughter who graduates high school next month.

It is a colorful quilt she'll love forever.

Grandma says the girl works with special ed children, who have signed the blocks along with their teachers.

A peek at the back

Mr Wazoo also finished his last quilt. We're both ready for some R&R!

Someone in Texas should like to see this!

Seen better from the back

The yard is coming along nicely, and should be blooming like crazy when we get back. Mr W has it spick and span for now. 
I'll try to remember to take some pictures at the show and pass them along to you. Until tomorrow!

The dogwood just starting to bloom

Two nice bunches of lilacs! And they said lilacs wouldn't grow here.
They don't know Mr Greenfingers...

The side yard is beginning to fill out, too.

The little pink dogwood is blooming like crazy, too!!

Welcome sign and phlox.

Even in the dreary rain the back yard is looking pretty.

Storytelling Festival with quilts!

The festival went well, and the quilts were a hit with the patrons. We explained our own quilts and gave little lessons in quilt documentation to the people looking at the many old quilts. Kay and I had a workshop with little kids that was sponsored by the festival. The kids made paper quilt blocks and had a lot of fun cutting and pasting (and running around like silly bunnies). I really like hanging out at quilt shows. I met some very interesting people, and heard some wonderful storytelling. Well worth going again next year!
Here is a little slideshow of the festival.
