IQF - Chicago

Yes, I do realize that nearly half the month has gone by and I have yet to post in April. Life's been just a bit too busy for quilting and blogging of late. Boo hoo! I did drop two quilts off with Sandi last week to be quilted, so you can look forward to photos of those before too long.

However, today I thought I'd share photos of some of my favorite quilts from a trip down to IQF Chicago yesterday. Ben was a trooper and agreed to accompany me down for the day. We started off with the vendor area because it was furthest from the door and that area was mobbed when they let the entire crowd in when the doors opened at 10. I'll share photos of my purchases later in the week...

Apparently I must be ready for spring (although the weather clearly wasn't yesterday as we ran into a bit of snow on the drive back up); the vast majority of the quilts I took photos of featured flowers.

This post is getting REALLY long and I'm getting tired of mucking around with trying to create a decent layout for these in Blogger, so I'll include more photos in another post soon, once I've gotten my patience back.
