KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, BUT IT DOESN'T MAKE MY BLOW DRYER RUN!

Six In The City
LOVED this one
All I can say is if you missed this exhibit of red and white quilts, I have nothing but sympathy for you! It was a once in a lifetime experience and none of the pictures can capture the depth and beauty of all those quilts gathered in one place. Just the amount of time and creativity put into the quilts alone was awesome. I can't swear but I think all 651 were hand quilted.
My companions for the day...Cheryl, Terry, Jane, Sujata, Christine (we almost lost her in the exhibit, she blended in) and Nancy.
Even a basic quilt was spectacular!
This was a crib quilt. The blocks were about 4" big.
Here is some reversed applique with embroidery.
Loved this border....
This one almost looks contemporary to me.....
Of course there was some shopping.....we went to The City Quilter, which has expanded since I was there last.
I was very restrained if I do say so myself....
My brother in law David met us for dinner at a restaurant called Eataly. We had 3 different kinds of pizza that was excellent!
We were all tired at the end of the day, but happy we made the trek. We were still talking about the quilts on the ride home.....
This is what we woke up to this morning. Will spring ever come?
