NQA memories

Got around to it finally; had to foward some of the photos to my pc at work because for some reason I'm unable to log into blogger from home. So, here are a few shots of my day in Columbus at NQA.

Jill spotted Eleanor Burns whilst we were grabbing a bite to eat for lunch. We waved and were going to invite her to join us, but she sat with somebody else by the time our sandwiches were ready. RATS! But, we were fortunate enough to meet up with her again at the Quilt In A Day booth. Jill and I bought books, had Eleanor autograph them and she was kind enough to let us snap a few shots. Ah, there is nothing like hob nobbing with quilting royalty! LOL

I liked the use of pink and green in this quilt and the quilting is very nice too. Don't think it won anything.

A Dear Jane quilt - way too much work for this lazy quilter, but very inspiring. There were at least three Dear Jane quilts - all used different colours and patterns.

Award winner! Very imaginative and original. Not something you'd toss on a bed, but really, really cute.

Check Jill's blog if you want to see other photos. We had such a great time and are already making plans for next year's show.
