While in Golden, we also visited the Creative Crafts' Group office, home of Quilter's Newsletter, Quiltmaker Magazine, McCalls Quilting and other major quilting and sewing magazines.
In the reception area of the office, they have a gallery where they exhibit quilts from some of their publications. At this time they had quilts made from blocks featured in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 3. Here are just a few.
Rain Dance by Judy Laquidara
Block # 283
Judy Laquidara has a wonderful blog called Patchwork Times that I've been reading for several months now. She's a very creative quilter who loves vibrant colors, just moved from Missouri to my home state Texas, and likes to raise chickens.
Black Pearl by Monique Dillard
Block # 267
These are just a few of the many quilts on display which made the visit there all worthwhile. There are just a few more things I want to show you about our trip, but that will be next time.

GOLDEN, COlORADO - QUILT HEAVEN
One of the most important stops on our Colorado vacation was in Golden, where we visited the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum. Pictures are on this Smilebox slideshow. Just click on the arrow. Please forgive the photographer. Some of the photos are a bit blurred or not well framed. The lighting was great for showing quilts but not for taking pictures.
