Quilting Fun

While I love the satisfaction of finishing a quilt, it isn't the only way to have fun with quilting. Fun also comes from the great outings with girlfriends, shopping expeditions with Grandma, or just sitting in my "thoughtful spot" chair perusing magazines and books. The thrill of the next project waiting just there on the horizon...

Right here in my own backyard an International Quilt Show is going on this weekend. Over 6 months ago, the Frankfort quilters and I planned our trip, sent in our reservations, and highlighted this show on our calendars.

The Cincinnati skyline by day...

...and the skyline by night.

Here is the link to the Cincinnati show.

Originally, all 5 of us were going to go, but sadly Sharon has been under the weather for a couple of months, and she has decided not to go. We will miss her! Our previous overnight outings have produced plenty of giggles and fun, and Sharon has been in the thick of our antics! Granted, I expect the 4 remaining festival-goers will manage plenty of silliness, but we will definitely miss Sharon's involvement in the mix.

We will stroll through the exhibits and shop the vendors. I've got a mental list of things I might be interested in looking for, and of course, I'm always open to spontaneous purchases!

I hope some bloggers will be there. Several bloggers I follow are from Ohio, so maybe we can meet. We leave this afternoon, and will be back home tomorrow evening.
