The convention hall was packed with vendors and quilts. I liked that the supporting guilds from the KC area all had booths and were selling their own opportunity quilt tickets and handmade items. This was my favorite opportunity quilt, designed by a member of the Blue Valley Quilters Guild and made by guild members. I bought tickets and hope I win!
Congratulations to Mayleen Vinson for winning Best of Show. I did quilt this but have to say that the quilting takes second place in this quilt - it's Mayleen's workmanship that won the award.
Mayleen won a new Bernina and here she is accepting her machine.
I didn't get pictures at the show - it was so crowded with happy quilters and I was too intent on my shopping.
On our way to the show we stopped for breakfast and they were serving monstrous cinnamon rolls. No, I
didn't eat one but did get a picture.
On the way home we stopped for ribs at a restaurant Michele and Lori love. The décor is... unique. Those are dollar bills hanging from the ceiling and posted on the wall.
They serve the best ribs I have ever eaten - on a stack of newspaper topped with foil. YUM! Guy and Mae's Tavern in Williamsburg.
