My Mother and I went to the MQX quilt show in Manchester on Saturday. There were a lot of quilts with lots of details, lots of quilting, lots of sparkles, lots of embroidery...
It's funny because I supposedly go "over the top" yet my quilts are minimalist compared to these. There was a lot of beautiful stuff, but only one quilt really "hit" me.
I met some lovely people. I handed a business card with my Black and White Crayons quilt on it to one lady. She looked at it admiringly, then pointed to my name. "I know that name. Is that you? You're famous." I thought it was pretty funny. My Mom said, "I told you!"
When I told folks I had TWO quilts accepted into AQS Paducah this year, all were impressed, and one lady asked "Did you win a prize?" I said I was never going to win a prize at an AQS show, as my quilts weren't quilted to within an inch of their lives..." Again my Mother whacked me in the arm. "You never know."
Hey, you gals at QT? Recognize the photo?
