International Quilt Festival–Chicago 2015

Last weekend I headed to the International Quilt Festival in Chicago.  It was an amazing experience and I can not wait until next year.  On Friday, I spent the day walking around the quilt show and checking out the vendor booths.  I want to share with you some of the quilts that caught my eye!

My big girls – Capri and Cedi (and my husband) came to see my quilt hanging in the show.  It was really nice to have my family come and see my passion hanging for all to see.  Pip stayed with Grandma for the weekend as she had had some beastly moments in the previous week and we just didn’t think she could handle Chicago.  Next time!
