I thoroughly enjoyed seeing your photos from this quilt show. Can't be there in person, so this posting was a great overview of the quality. Works of art. Thanks.

Wonderful quilts! I moved to the NW before this show came to WPB. (lived in Jupiter) How were the vendors? Did you happened to take notice of the rug hooking booth? I believe they are from Maine but winter in FL.

The beautiful Hoffman Challenge quilt is "Cottage Window" by Ann Horton of Redwood Valley, California.

I agree it was a wonderful show, and thank you so much for including my Titanic quilt on your blog. I'm glad you liked it!
