SO many old quilts to see, so much to absorb. I snapped photos here and there, but they don't do anything to convey the richness of the lectures and "study centers". There were six bed turnings, a silent auction, dinners, field trips, the works. Quilt Lovers from ALL over the country. An exuberant knowledgable bunch and I just held on and enjoyed the ride!
I helped with the NEQM bed turning on opening night. Lots of variety from their collection, including the irresistable Little Women quilt:
Wendy Reed (The Constant Quilter) showed us some amazing sample books at Manchester Historic Society.
Wendy and Barb (Fun with Barb) were the life of the party wherever they were;).
I enjoyed the Quilts and Color study center by Gerald Roy of Pilgrim/Roy fame
If you love old quilts, and history... and where they intersect - consider joining AQSG and let me know if you do! There are occasional regional get-togethers. Like being in school again - in all the best ways.
Meanwhile... I am hoping for some good Trick or Treating foot traffic tonight, down our long driveway. I look forward to meeting some neighborhood kids this way. This is our first Halloween here, and only our second as empty nesters. It's all so sweet...
