It was another delightful experience at the American Quilter's Society Quilt Week in Grand Rapids, MI with 337 quilts from 33 States, and 7 Countries on exhibit, competing for awards and generally exciting the crowd. A Third Place Ribbon in the Wall Quilts-Hand Quilted category was awarded to "Playing It", 37" x 48" and I was the grateful recipient.

It was a happy surprise to run into friends from the Beaver Island Quilt Retreat. Here we are "cutting up".

Congratulations to Joni Morgan, another "Liberated Quilter". Her quilt "Autumn in Boyle County was juried into the Modern Quilt Challenge on exhibit in Grand Rapids.
My mom was my sidekick and agent at the show. She enthusiastically offered to introduce me to people standing near my quilt! Because she is really camera shy, no photos here. Our last activity at Quilt Week was to visit the Quilt of Belonging exhibit, and that was a moving close to our time in Grand Rapids. I'll have more to share about that at a later date. Finally, Happy 30th Anniversary American Quilter's Society! pjb
