Okay…I am here. Yes I am!
We did the Mid Atlantic Quilt Show on last Thursday opening day.Was a very large turnout of venders and show attendance. A surprise really as some were thinking with the slow economy it would be down. Loads of quilts and assorted other items from traditional as above winner to modern fiber art.
Another winner. Lots of entricate work here.
I was slack and did not write down any maker info! Sorry.
Speaking of the modern art section..was a bit of a hoopla drama over one of the pieces. Here are a couple links you can read about it .
Liz also has some links of pics she took. Alice, Diana and I walked by it but hey was not our cup of tea so went on.We all have our own ideas of what 'Art' is or what we like. I feel this gal had a right to show her fiber art piece which she created to try to make a statement with. As I said I may not find it appealing personally but that does not mean it should be banned.Which is what this one gal wanted to do by removing it. Do I think in any way it was pornographic or meant to be..no. Just my opinion ..which everyone is entitled to have one.
Had a good day but was very worn out from it. Was a good kind of worn out!Had a ball !! We enjoyed seeing some of the quilts on display. Look at all ?? NO! My camera died on one quilt I thought was so pretty. Will share on another post what pics I did get.
We had a good time checking out vender booths as well. Bought a bit of fabric, a foot for my Bernina and cute T-shirt for my DH. Alice and Diana bought some patterns with a bit of fabric.
Some pretty dark red civil war fabrics.
I also bought a bundle of cheddars. Humm where are they????
We had a grand picnic lunch in the lobby area! Liz joined us and she has a post with more pics on her blog. Some very yummy goodness was shared. Would you believe some gals went by us and thought we were nuts!! I DO DECLARE!! I reckon having a good time with friends is a NO NO at the show! Well it is not like we cared!! Hahaha! If you leave to go to a restaurant you lose your parking space!! Besides I will never again pay the outrageous price for a yuck sandwich there again. Even if I just take a Peanut Butter Sammie and water along!
All in all even with the quilt drama, dead camera batteries, rude passersby’s and all the walking, was a FANTASTIC good time with good stitching friends!
Sure wish more of ya’ll could have been there too!!
Maybe next year ok???
A shout out to our pal Elaine who has a broken bone in her foot. She had to sit out the show this year!
