The people you see in NYC!!!

My friend Bev arranged for a group of quilters to get together at the
Russian Tea Rooms on the first night the exhibit was open.
The Bloggers -Lto R- Lori- Humble Quilts, Jo Morton_ Jo's Journal, , Mary KovalSue from l Sew Quilts, Me,  Diane- Quiltmaker, and in front, Vicki and Jan - What a Load of Scrap

This photo below is a group shot, minus the DH's who were taking the photo's.
l count 18 women, but l think a few were missing. You can just imagine
 the quilty talk around the table that night!!!!

Then on Sunday we had this group shot at the exhibit.
From L-R Randi, Bev, Lorre, Me, and Kathie from Inspired by Antique Quilts.
It was a great delight to finally meet Kathie. We have been emailing for many years.

On the Sunday, we were joined by some of my quilting friends from back home.
Chris and Sandra also made the trip, and we enjoyed many wonderful times together.

Well, our time in NYC was amazing, almost as amazing as some of the quilts we saw.
Its been a busy few week since l came home, lot's been happening, and there is lot's planned for the next few months, so while l hate to leave the red and whites behind, its time to move on to other  STUFF!!!
l still have to go back and fill in the few days between here and when we arrived in NYC!! Wonderful times  happened in those few days, and they deserve to be shown.

Thanks for visiting.

  8. How nice that you were able to connect with so many quilters/bloggers while in NYC. I'm still jealous of your exciting trip to the exhibit. Not sure why I wasn't paying more attention to add it to my trip to the east coast for work a couple weeks ago. Oh well. I've certainly enjoyed seeing all of the photos in blogland!
