The people responsible for the hang did a phenomenal job!! I "worked the show" Thursday afternoon and all day Friday. Each time I went through, I noticed a quilt that I hadn't spotted on my last pass.
Photos were taken during the first two days of the show and they are presented in no particular order. Yes, I realize that this IS a photo-heavy post...
This quilt was the first to reach out and grab me. It embraced the the theme for the show, Building Friendships - Building Skills, with the use of Friendship Star blocks. Of course, the super-scrappy selvage blocks probably helped draw me in:
