International Quilt Festival

Neighbor/traveling companion/walking partner/sewing buddy Susan and I went to the Rosemont Convention Center for the International Quilt Festival. It's a cornucopia of vendors and quilts.Quilting certainly is popular, but the demographic isn't an attractive one. We are mostly overweight gray-haired ladies. And I think we tend to be a happy lot. There are certainly some very talented and creative women. That's the direction I hope I'm headed in. Here are some quilts that caught my eye.

Click on this quilted wall hanging to see the detail of "The Indian Women Gathering at the Well." It's brilliant.
