Thanks everyone!   My mom was so happy to see how many of my craftster friends got to see her stuff.  She was touched by all of your comments.  Don't give me too much credit for the little speeches about her quilts though.  I've just been involved so often in setting up her things, that I kind of know most of them by heart.  I also original organized her book, so that helps me know them all too Grin

Wow is all I can say! Dynamic colors, designs, and very interesting collection of variety in the patterns. Can you ever get her from the sewing machine to dinner table, or does she just eat there???  Wink

These are just all so amazing. What a talent your mother has.  As I scrolled through I kept saying "this is my favourite one", then I gave up cos there were so many to choose a favourite.

Everyone is being so sweet!  Thanks Grin

I tried to get her into craftsers Racky, but she is intimidated about the computer part of it all.  But maybe next time I come down to see them, I will see about getting it set up for her so it would be easier for her to deal with.

She does a very good job of balancing quilting with reality heheh.  My Dad has never gone hungry because of her needing to finish a quilt Grin.  But that is one of the nice things about minis and wall hangings....they go much faster then full sized quilts!

Thank you for posting this- I have been asking myself for a long time what a quilt show actually is- and now I know! We don't have things like that over here- and I am amazed at the skill displayed. I think quilting is a beautiful tradition and I applaud everyone who keeps it alive.

There is just one question- how do you keep yourself from touching them? All the little signs warning off sticky fingers are just adorable, but for the life of me I couldn't keep myself from feeling all the wonderful fabrics under my fingers Wink So I guess it's a good thing I don't get to go to these shows..

.. and of course, I can't pick a favourite, but I am very intrigued by all the wonderfully complicated patterns Wink

Lots of quilt shows have what is called White Glove Ladies.  Which are volunteers who offer white cotton gloves so that folks can handle the quilts and lift to see the backs.  They did offer them at the event, but we were not told about his so Mom was just being careful.  It is because humans all have different acid levels and after a time, that can show on the quilts.  But if one is wearing gloves (especially white ones with red polka dots (sorry an inside joke)) the quilts are protected. (and you would SO get to touch everything if you got to come and see them live Sweetling Grin)
