Where were you Forty (40) years ago in late October? Were you fortunate enough to attend that first quilt festival? I wasn't there! But, over the years, it has been star on my calendar--Quilt Fest--a place where you meet other quilters, learn new techniques, sew up a storm, admire craftsmanship of many hands--a marvelous place. This festival has grown from one hall to many halls in the convention center. A few vendors to many rows of vendors.
This year was Ruby Celebration of the Quilt Festival--a must to attend, even if only for a short time.
What a grand entrance!! Everyone a Red and White Quilt! There is much to admire--so little time to stop and see each one in all their glory.
Traditional quilts worked with all reds.
It is said that all reds work well together and this is proof!

A whole wall of support!

The day I visited the halls were sparse with attendees, so was perfect time to walk through the halls and dream of being back here again next year!!
