Only three weeks until the annual American Quilter's Society Quilt Show in Des Moines! It is nothing like the Houston Show or Market, but it is as good as it gets here in Iowa and I have had a fun time going the last two years.
|From last year: A Farmer's Wife? Or did the quilter design her own blocks?|
|I love this one. The center hexagon has an appliqued doily.|
So this is my Three Pronged Plan to have someone to gush to at the show:
- I am going to try to recruit my church friends again...third time's the charm?
- I am going to go to the Des Moines Modern Quilt Guild meeting on the 15th and see if anyone wants to meet up (They have a fun meeting planned too.)
- And I will be in the way-over-priced food court at noon if anyone from blogland wants to get together. I will be wearing a red rose and eating a sack lunch. :)
|This American Jane pattern is on my "make someday" list.|
Common! You know you have always wanted to visit Des Moines. Right?!? It's so
exciting, historic......well, there is a quilt show and it doesn't get any better than that. :) Did I mention there were lots of vendors?
