I came out of there with a few prominent thoughts swimming in my head.
1) Between the ticket price and the parking I paid $16.50. I was there for about 2 and a half hours. Thinking about it this way, I can't wait for the Portland Modern Quilt Guild to start collecting dues. It is totally worth the money. The PMQG is three hours once a month and it comes with a sense of community that I didn't have at the quilt show.
2) I am totally not into quilts with rhinestones on them. It's like someone attacked a quilt with a Bedazzler. I wish I could unsee that part of the quilt show.
3) There is so much to learn from looking at quilts, even the ones I don't "like". I try to analyze the pattern, construction, color scheme and quilting on each one. I learned so much!
