Oh I wish I had met you! Next year maybe we can plan better.

Thanks for your kind words, Wendy. And B.J., your "Noel" was great, and how cool was it that it was hung next to Ricky's quilt! I was there every day of the show, so I know we could have walked right past each other. Next year let's be sure to plan ahead.

Susan, thanks for all the great pictures. BJ and Jane, congratulations on having your quilts on display at such a prestigious show! I imagine that BJ is right in her observations about what's in vogue at quilt shows now, but as for me I love VARIETY! You ladies just keep doing the beautiful work you do!

I'm so sorry I didn't check the forum before I left for Hampton last Tuesday. I was incredibly busy with last minute household stuff. Susan, thanks for taking and posting my quilt picture. This was my first attempt at getting into a big show, so I was really excited to receive the letter from Mancuso, saying "We are pleased to inform you . . . " I have been attending this show since it was in Williamsburg, sometimes with a local quilt group, sometimes with my sister, who recently moved to Norfolk. We would have been happy to get together with other TQS members for dinner together or whatever. Let's try again next year! :D

I've sent Jane an email telling her I'm posting, hope it's ok. It is a beautiful quilt.

Returned late last night from the Quiltfest - a wonderful trip and great classes.

Saw Betty Jo's Noel - it was lovelier in person than in photos - well done.

There was also a terrific quilt from the HST exchange (Friendship Triangles). My picture didn't turn out or I would've posted it. I believe the quilter was Susan Combs. What fun to see another creative use of the HSTs! I couldn't find my own HST but did see Ricky Tims' and Alex Anderson's.

Susan, thanks for all the photos. Great to see BJs' and Rickys' quilts side by side. And the detailed shots are great - we love those. :D

1. Tiny pebble quilting is really popular now;

2. Quilting seems to be getting more and more dense;

3. Painted quilts are really well accepted now and increasingly used as a technique;

4. A lot of interesting textures are being achieved with what might almost be considered free motion embroidery that serves also as quilting;

5. And what was most clear at the show (and at the Philadelphia show last year also) is that VERY bright jewel tones are favorites of the judges at the moment.

I wonder if others would agree with me.

Thanks for these observations, BJ. It was great seeing your quilt side by side with Ricky's! Great photo, Susan!

BJ, I am going to Paducah and MQS this year. I will pay attention to these things and see if you are right. Thanks for passing this on. If I come up with anything else, I will let everyone know. I am nowhere near entering a quilt in a show, but this is part of the learning process. Thanks again!
I forgot to say I loved you quilt. I remember when you were looking for the right night sky fabric. I think you have it there. Congratulations on the show. I hope I get to see it later this spring.

Thanks for sharing, Sue. I think you've done a good job in taking photos. I'm sure the conditions on the show were not the best. Lovely to see all the details. I love the quilting very much
