People have been happy and polite. Many have looked how I have felt: walking around wide eyed, trying to soak it all in.
One of my favorite booths was Nifty Thrifty Dry Goods, that carried a very colorful selection of ribbons, buttons and trims.
I've spent most of my time working in the Quilt Show Shoppe with my friend Pati, who is so fun to be around.
Pati is in charge of the shop. When ever you receive an on-line order from The Quilt Show, you are the recipient of Pati's hard work.
It's been fun to watch Alex Anderson interact with all her fans. She and her staff spend most of their time signing people up for The Quilt Show. They are getting ready to launch a new magazine, also.
Ricky Tims has his own booth section where he sells his music and quilt patterns. Ricky just came out with a new Christmas CD called "Christmas In A Small Town."
In the morning, we have about a 1/2 hour to walk through the quilt displays. I went one morning with Heather (Mother Superior) and Annie Unrein to see the Indigo's of China.

In the Silent Auction area we saw this miniature called "Day Tripping With Jane and Mother Superior" by Philippa Naylor of the United Kingdom. Philippa uses a lot of Superior Threads.
Every day there are many guests artists who come into the Quilt Show booth and show their beautiful works of art. Sue Garman designed both Block of The Month quilts for 2010 that are on display in the Quilt Show booth. I am showing a little teaser that you can see behind Sue. The rest I edited out because you need to see this pieced quilt in it's entirety on The Quilt Show web site, which will be shown at the end of the year. I really fell in love with the bright colors of this quilt. We started selling kit here at the show, and then every month members can download the patterns free.
