AQS Quilt Show 2013

I spent all day Saturday at the AQS Quilt show in Grand Rapids, MI.  It was fabulous.  My friend, Sandy and I went through all the vendors together.  Sandy had already been through on a previous day but still found some things she had to have.  I spent my share, but I think I did very well.  I added a few more project kits to add to my collection of kits that I bought last year at the AQS show!  I enjoyed shopping and visiting with Sandy all morning.  We made it through all the vendors in 4 1/2 hours, not bad!

I made sure that Terri and I got a picture together with our quilt!  If you haven't seen previous post about this quilt, Terri did the quilting (and a fabulous job too).  We didn't win any ribbons, but just getting accepted into the show was award enough for me.

Then later in the afternoon my Mom, Aunt Ann, sister-in-law Venus, niece Brianna, friend Dan, nephew Austin and Jim came to the show and we all walked around viewing the quilts.  It was a wonderful day, seeing my quilt hanging in a National show (getting tons of beautiful comments on it), visiting with several quilty friends and visiting with family. 

I also stayed and helped with the take down of the show.  This year we had a very good sized group of volunteers so it went very fast.  It was a very long day but one I enjoyed very much.
