It's hard to believe that it's been a week since we drove back from Providence, Rhode Island after attending MQX. The exhibit of quilts is always so awesome, and this year was no exception. The talent that is shown not only in machine quilting, but in design is outstanding. And what became very evident, and is apparently a trend, is that the winners were often domestic machine quilters. They can do work just a little finer than the long armers. I wish I could post photos, but I think that's a no-no so you can google MQX East to see some pictures.
Me and my friend Alice at the Banquet where we were entertained by the family saga of quilts by Kim Brunner. She shared a lovely story of how her matriarchs provided the family with quilts from their early settlement days in the mid 1800's in Minnesota and saved them from the dreadful storms by using the quilts.
I did a little walking tour of the downtown core as we had spectacular weather. Here are a few buildings that caught my eye.
And since this was a quilting show, what inspiration for a quilting design!
