Arrival & Day One:
QuiltCon. What an experience! Where to start? After an entire day of travelling, Charlottetown to Toronto to Newark, to Savannah and having every one of the flights delayed, I finally arrived. Although, without my checked baggage! Yikes, I have a class Friday morning which requires a rotary cutter and scissors...
I met up with my friends from Ottawa, for a nightcap and was thankful I planned for the next day so I had my materials for the two classes, minus some essentials for the following day.
Friday, my friend EP and I went to the ferry to cross the water to the Savannah Convention Centre, where QuiltCon was being held. Look at the woodwork! The morning views, wonderful.
I attended a lecture by Elizabeth Hartman, which I enjoyed. She loves pattern and colour and showed us what the impact of different fabric selected made to the overall quilt.
Whew! After a whirlwind of activity the previous day, today was a bit more relaxing. Chose to have a leisurely breakfast at a nearby diner, walk the area around our hotel and check out the places where Forest Gump was filmed! Then we headed to the ferry to go over the water and catch our first lecture.
Heard Cheryl Arkison defending UFOs and WIPs! Great lecture and I had the opportunity to briefly chat with her afterwards.
Well, after that we went to the Pirate House for supper and Leopold's for ice cream. Both were culinary experiences. Another splendid day.
Well, this day was the last day of QuiltCon. :(
The schedule for day 3 included a workshop with Christa Watson in the morning. So after breakfast and a visit with the Waving Girls, we headed over the water for my FMQ class.
