There was just so much to see and do during this year's American Quilt Study in Charleston...
it was great but I am still recovering energy!
In addition to the great paper presentations, show and tell, vendors and auction I took a seminar on the color Cheddar,
toured the Quilt Exhibit at the Charleston museum (wonderful!), and took part in a round-table on string-quilts!
Add that to lots of walking around seeing the Charleston sites and eating way too much good food...it made for a great seminar!
I did bring home a couple of quilt tops, a quilt, and lots of books. It is a great opportunity to get quilt history and textile books...the only one I missed was one on Chintz...have to go back and get it on Amazon.
I brought home Carpenter's wheel top from the auction. It has a great collection of browns, pinks and indigo.
The live auction was a lot of fun and the proceeds go to support the American Quilt Study Group.
This is part of a turn of the century Ocean Wave that I picked up in the vendor mall. This is my third O.W. so I guess you could call that a collection! It all fits in with a program I do on quilt collecting...like how I rationalize that one!
