If you are planning already, Rita, FoQ will be a little earlier next year, starting on the 8th of August.

Lorchen, I love my quilt! What a merry old time we have had! Thanks for taking me to FoQ Birmingham. Maybe next year 3D Rita will make it. :D

Just in case any of you were worried about Flat Rita. She did not have to stay in my suitcase all the time. The moment we arrived in the hotel she got her own bed and quilt:

And then we shared a Frappuchino whilst waiting for Anne and Wendy:

Highlight of the day was meeting Pattim Hempen, but I think Patti didn't quite get what this was all about. Patti is a member of TQS, so maybe she'll see this. :)

I didn't think of it until I saw pictures of the cards in the TQS smileboxes from some shows. Then the lightbulb went off!

Wendy - What I do to keep track of the quilt name and quilter is to take a picture of the quilt description card right before taking a picture of the quilt. Then I don't have to write anything down and I won't lose the information. And there is no worry about me getting any of the quilts mixed up.

'Nutty'???? Never. We are serious textile artist and were on a several day fact-finding mission. I'll post some details when I'm back home tomorrow night.

and both of you :D My friend Jane was a bit bemused by flat Rita, I'll put the pics up on that thread later. I found Rosemary's friend said hello and bought some nice hand dyed fabric from her.

I really enjoyed the show and the mix round of the set up made it feel quite different from last year. I only got told off once - for taking a photo in the wrong place. I don't think I can post the quilt show pictures of stunning quilts because I didn't note down the maker and I know they are quite touchy in this country about displaying work and you need to acknowledge the maker.

After what I've been learning on here and the fmq challenge I took particular note of the quilting and there were some wonderful pieces. I did a lot of oohing and ahhing. The quilters olympics made me laugh, very witty wish I'd thought of that.

Good to have met you Lorchen and Anne, I thought it would be awkward but it was like meeting old friends if a little nutty. :D
