I have a few more quilts to show you from the Long Beach show. There were so many wonderful quilts, I almost didn't know which pictures to take.
Hoffman Fabrics has a challenge each year, where the participants use a select group of fabrics.
Sorry I forgot to get the names of the designers of the next these two quilts.
I loved the quilting in this one.
I am more drawn to traditional quilts than I am Art quilts, so these caught my eye.
From far away, this quilt didn't look that spectacular.
But, up close it was wonderful in technique!
This one was so bright and cheerful it just made me happy.
Someday I want to do a two color quilt.
As much as I loved seeing all the quilts and vendor booths, one of the things I love to do the most is people watch. The convention was crowded, but it had the most interesting people. I know they had participation from all over the United States. Everyone there seemed excited and happy just to be around beautiful fabrics, and all the products that make our quilting possible.
Happy, Happy Energy.
A few woman were brave enough to bring their children. Some brought their husbands who often waited patiently on the outskirts of the mob. This woman brought her dog.
Complete with pink stroller, and doggie toys.
The craft of this years convention? Hundreds of women were walking around with spools of thread on their heads, attached by a head band.
I looked, but no, those were not from Superior Threads.
*and my favorite people moment: I was approached by Brenda from California who asked me if I was Nedra from Cactus Needle. (She saw my badge from Superior Threads). When I said yes, she commented that she reads my blog every day, and thanked me for sharing my world. Thank you Brenda for coming up and saying hello! It was delightful to meet you!
