Chicago International Quilt Festival

Ed and I headed to Chicago Saturday for the IQS quilt show. It was a beautiful show. I didn't take any classes, but was content to look at all the beautiful quilts and of course the vendor area! I played with allot of the long arm quilting machines - they are allot of fun - but the price has always scared me off! Maybe when I win the lottery!

Ed doesn't mind going to the shows with me - and I'll tell you why. We went to the Mid-Atlantic Quilt show several years ago when it was in Williamsburg, VA and very, very crowded; you could barely move through the vendor area. I won't go into much detail here but lets just say he was inappropriately groped and not my me!

The quilt shown won the Best of Show Award- "I Ain’t No Spring Chicken" is 57” x 39” and was made by David Taylor of Steamboat Springs, CO. It really is a fun and beautiful quilt.
