I’m just home from MQX West, which was held in the Convention Center in Portland, Oregon. I taught one class and took four IQ (Intelliquilter) classes. More than anything, I had a really great time! I don’t know why (I suppose it’s because I’m on the web alot and have a big mouth), so many people seem to know me, that I’m constantly meeting new friends as well as old ones. The quilts were wonderful at the show — so much to aspire to. I’ve had a few quilts banging around in my head for a while, and one of them has just made a break for freedom. We’ll see how long it gets me to corral it onto some fabric. I’d love to have it in next year’s show!
