Art Quilt Tahoe 2006

Sunday, November 5th, 2006

I flew in to Reno today and was met by the hotel shuttle and after a short ride arrived at my home for the next 10 days. I found my packages had arrived and got settled in the classroom. I had dinner with Teri Springer, Liz Berg and Carol Soto (both old friends from quilting venues.) My roomie is from Virginia and still on east coast time so I am going to get this posted and get some early shut eye.

First, here are some pics:

Two of my favorite people – Sue Benner and Liz Berg. That is Hollis Chatelaine who made it in to the photo.


I really miss Mrs. Mel (and I am not the only one!), but here is her quilt to promote her class at Art Quilt Claremont next spring:


And here is Rayna’s quilt, promoting her class at Claremont in the spring. I will be taking that class – wheee!


I was very attracted to this basket of Valdani variegated Perle cotton:


And of course, the ever popular feature of AQT, the dessert du jour:


I have a new camera – the Canon Powershot A640. It is 10 mega-pixels. I am trying to learn all of its functions, but so far I love it – especially the movable LCD screen.

That is my report for day one of my AQT 10 day marathon.
