I spent quite a few days in Minneapolis at the trade show then teaching at Gruber's quilt shop then doing a book signing at Barnes & Noble... yes .. a REAL book store! It was so exciting and so fun to have all that packed into one trip.
Let me give you a little tour of my events. First day was schoolhouses, where we book time and share about something specific. I did THREE of these! The one above if for my latest book with my publisher Martingale 'Pat Sloan's Teach me to Applique'. I showed all the quilts, but ...

- Solids are Kona Mint and Kona Azalea.
- Quilting thread is a variegated purple, orange, and pink that was randomly in my stash.
- Back is a vintage sheet, it’s beyond soft.

This is the first in my series of Quilt Show Posts with a color theme! On this memorial day weekend I want to honor all those that are serving and have served in our military. My father-in-law that was in WWII and Korea, my great uncle, my friends, and those I don't know.
