(I had to, it was like hand shadows on the projector screen in high school)
There were so many quilts that it was HARD to be able to take photos of each every one, go to lectures and see the booths too. The quilts and the quilting was really STUNNING! If you could not attend this Quiltcon, make sure to mark your calendar and plan on being at the next!
This quilt was really on the top of my list. Simple, beautiful and HAPPY!
Angela Walters quilt was really fantastic. It reminds me of Vertigo. I was completely drawn in!
Dan Rouse you are a FREAKIN ROCK STAR! The back of this quilt is just as fantastic as the front!
So just to wrap things up I want to share a couple more more stories and shots from Austin because Austin and the crazy, fun, kind and awesome people that live there need to know they are really appreciated! At least by this Go-Go Girl :o)
My diet is an odd one, I am gluten and sugar free and also vegan. I do not ask others to eat the way I do and do not judge the way others eat. I eat this way for medical reasons and it really works for me. Eating out can be a kind of challenge in a different city but Austin has MANY places to eat and they embrace those "different" eaters as one of their own!!!!!
On Thursday night the gals and I decided to follow Katie to a place her sister in law said was a MUST GO TO for authentic Austin food. SO we started walking...in the wrong direction but finally got going in the right direction and after a bit ended up here
TRAILER PARK WHAT!?!?!?! OMG!!! LOL!!!! I was skeptical about this but was willing to give it a go, with a little nudge from Katie ;o)
Great menu and really great food!!
All the gals were fed and happy!!!! HAPPY QUILTERS Katie, Christa, Faith, Holly and Lee ( with NO FOOD in her mouth ;o) )
This is possibly my most favorite thing in Austin. I saw it on the way in from the airport and was afraid I missed getting a closer look. I lived in San Diego for almost all of my adult life and Texas for a couple of years too. I was raised in the Southeast but so much of who I am is in the Southwest and this really struck me.
This SHOULD be a fabric! It is a painted Indian food truck. The colors were so beautiful!!! Reminds me of an Alexander Henry print...ALL of Austin reminds me of an Alexander Henry print,LOL!
This is a guitar sculpture in the middle of the sidewalk. Again, LOVE the COLOR!!!!
These shoes were great! Simple outfit POP of color shoes!
All the FABULOUS clothes! Rashida Coleman-Hale and Melody Miller looking perfect!
Hi Angela, thanks for dancing with me :o)
Sukie and Lee getting serious!
Lots of dancing!
What!?!? Michael Jackson!!!!! Sukie did the part up RIGHT!
This may be my favorite of the night! Monica made an 1880's outfit for her 80's costume!!!! She is so BRILLIANT!
The next day it was time to go home. I packed my big red bag with all the necessary items.
