A Busy Weekend

First there was the Trinity Valley Quilt Guild Show.  Delivery of quilts on Thursday morning early then back later that afternoon to volunteer as a scribe for one of the Judges.

My friend Charlotte from Temple came down Friday morning to meet me for lunch at our favorite Fort Worth tea room, located in the Montgomery Street Antique Mall.   We then drove a few blocks to the quilt show.  There were some wonderful quilts displayed.  My idea of heaven.

Best of show was Baskets in Flight made by Sally Brown and quilted by Susan Corbett.

Simply gorgeous.

My Viewer’s Choice pick was Vintage Valentines made by Susan Bancroft and quilted by Richard Larson.

just to name a few.  Next time I’ll post more quilt show photos.

In the meantime, this weekend I’ve upgraded my computer operating system to Windows 7 so many files had to be moved, updated, organized, etc. from my old Vista (yuck) program.  Things are getting better in my computer world.  Many problems solved with the new Windows 7 but there is still work to be done.

Until later,
