Quilt Con post 2

It has been a heck of a spring break.  If you follow my Instagram you saw that my lovely child and I went to DC.  It was both of our 1st time and it was just wonderful.  My girl was among 3 other students that participated in the wreath laying ceremony at the Arlington National Cemetery.   Words can not describe the pride I felt at this event.  I may do another blog post on it but this one is quilt con 2, so on to the display quilts.   The 1st one won and the people's choice award is the Lincoln Quilt.  The pictures that are side by side are the same quilts just close ups.  Enjoy!

Quilt Con post 1

My 1st Quilt Con was an overwhelming success!  Me and my bestie Brandi went together.  We met up at the dreaded Atlanta Airport (I can't with that place always a delay, like a 4 hour one).   So it was late when we arrived in lovely Savannah, GA.
 
So this was us when we arrived at what is quite possible the best hotel in the world the Marriott!  I mean we loved it there and it was not that it was the nicest place the people that worked there were extraordinary!   We arrived on Tuesday night and we worked as volunteers on Wednesday for 8 hours.  We helped with the goodie bags and hand quilts.  Volunteering was great fun and we met a lot of folks that way.  It was a lot of work though but we are hard workin girls so it was fine.  So below are some pictures of our time.  I will post pictures of the actual show quilts in another post.
