I went to QuiltCon in Nashville, TN last week. I had so much fun walking around, seeing and meeting people. Nothing compares to seeing your quilt hang in a quilt show. I met so many quilters who shared the feeling. It literally took me a few days to recuperate from soreness of my body. My friend and I walked about 2.5 to 3 miles everyday while we were there with our heavy bags. Unfortunately, it rained a lot from the time our plane touched the ground to the time we left. We had a lot of fun, nonetheless.
There were so many beautiful quilts in the show and I would like to post some of my favorites here. I'm sorry I didn't get all the quilt makers' names to go with the quilt pictures. Some of them I thought I could read from the label next to the quilt, but they are too small to read from the picture. In any case, I apologize if I got the names wrong.

Over all, this year QuiltCon was a big success in my book. Thanks to the MQG and all volunteers who made it a great event. I know a few volunteers and crew, and I'll tell you, they worked very hard for the show. Thank You very much, again.
