Final installment.  As I made my way through the exhibit, I was struck and dismayed at the absence of pieced quilts.  The emphasis seemed by far to be on applique, threadpainting, landscape/portrait.. much closer to the art quilt genre.  While I have great respect for the talent and creativity of work like this, is not my personal favorite (old-fashioned girl.)  Thankfully towards the end, I located some beauties that made my heart skip a beat.  THAT’S what I’m talkin’ about LOL!  (Can click on the images for a better image.)

I tried to be disciplined as I wandered along the 14 HUGE aisles of vendor booths, but a few items were must-haves.  I specifically looked for someone selling TJ Lane thimbles, so I could add to my collection of her gorgeous, handcrafted silverwork.  Most things I buy on her website, but thimbles must be fitted in person, in my experience.  Pansies are a favorite flower.  So:

Thank you for following  me through Cincinnati.  I had a fabulous time… so fabulous, I already booked my room for next year.  😀
