The International Quilt Festival

Was it just me or did anyone else miss the International Quilt Festival this year? Instead of Chicago, the International Quilt Festival was held in Cincinnati this year - and will be there next year, too - April 13 - 15, 2012.

I probably wouldn't have thought that much about the International Quilt Festival except fellow blogger Andrea Johnson of the Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild posted two marvelous entries that really made me sad Chicago has lost this festival. However, Andie's entries made me feel as if (almost) I was actually there.  Here's Part I of Andie's coverage. And Part II.

Need some eye candy? Andie provides it! She even settles the question of whether the Quilt Police actually exist. And she also has some great tutorials in her blog!

Thanks, Andie, for your coverage and being our quilt eyes!
