Quilt Market - Recap of Wednesday

Thursday, May 12, 2011
The first photo I took... out my hotel window.

The convention center

My empty booth!!

40 minutes later it isn't so empty!!

Between getting up before 4am... and then the time change of adding 2 hours to our day... we quickly were beat.  We got some food & went back to the hotel to rest.

Later I did get to see Chopsticks hanging in Robert Kaufman's booth!


 It's 7:30am right now... and this is what my bed looks like.  One pile contains 14 quilts... made in 4 months... crazy!!  We are headed to the convention center to start hanging them up!

I might not get to blog again soon... but I'm taking lots of photos & will share them when I have time to post!!
