You had to climb a flight of stairs and go out a sky-walk to the next building where the classrooms were, or school house. These classrooms were a good size. Pfaff sponsored the event so in class we used their new basic machine. From this area you passed through double doors down a long corridor to the Promenade where the miniature quilts, 3 D quilts, Round Robins, and more were displayed. I took hundreds of pictures but will only share my favorites with you.
All the miniatures were amazing. I am sure most were made using a foundation, but it was incredible to see such precision in a tiny piece. The pink fans above were only 1.5 inches square (I'm guessing here). Next time I will have to remember to bring my tape measure. They all look so even and perfect. I always wanted to do a super small miniature quilt. I even have a couple books on the subject. I've attempted a couple charm quilts and they look too much like a doll quilt, not a miniature.
Overall it was an amazing festival in a wonderful city. Visit IQFOI to see more about this year's festival. I hope you've enjoyed seeing my view of the show. Maybe this has inspired you as this trip has inspired me.
Until next time, have a good day and take some time out to do the thing (s) you love. ;o)
