I had the chance to go to the Madison, WI Quilt Expo yesterday! I had missed the last few years, so this was a huge treat. 303 amazing quilts on display - every one of them award worthy, I thought. Winning quilts showed a lot of gorgeous glitzy threads, and embellishments, but there were also some amazing more traditional quilts that were also awarded ribbons. Makes me feel like my work is so mediocre, but still worth the love and time that goes into them. Wools remain popular, and many projects had s wonderful mix of wools, with cottons, silks, etc. All the vendors were friendly, and eager to help. Now I feel like I should go directly to a retreat while I still have all these new ideas running around in my head.
