There were lectures from many of the leaders in the modern quilting movement.
We had an exhibit of Denyse Schmidt's quilts. I had the honor of hanging these quilts. (and with a group of volunteers, making and pinning sleeves on them so they could hang.) Ask me how it felt pinning through Denyse's quilts.
We had an amazing staff. Amy and Gina worked the registration desk. Awesome!!!
There were classes, classes and more classes! I taught on Thursday and Sunday. I had three sets of great students. It was a blast!
While the 10 days I spent in Austin was exhausting and I didn't have much time to enjoy the event, the best part for me was the people I met and worked with. The staff, pictured below, are the hardest workers and most dedicated members of the Modern Quilt Guild. It was my pleasure to spend 10 long, hard days with them. Best days I've had in a long time.
