This was how I spent my first Saturday in Austin while Will was at work across the street. The Palmer Events Center is right across from Terry Black’s BBQ and Will’s smoking “pits”. After a morning of heavy rains and thunder, I took a cab to the quilt show.
Texans have a long quilting history. It must be part of their DNA.
I’ve never entered a quilt in a show, and probably never will. I make too many mistakes when I’m quilting and worrying about them would take away the enjoyment of sewing. I stitch for relaxation, for fun, for the happy feeling I get when giving quilts away. So I am in total awe of those talented quilters who create perfection. And then let all of us study, enjoy and be inspired by their work.
What a treat to be in Austin for the show.
