We all had a blast wearing Jay's clothes around Saturday... We all sadly gave the clothes back... ;-)
Above:Jay talks about his "Touchstone" object during his Q.S.O.S. story.
The Orange outfit modeled by Luke Haynes (rock star quilter), was a project Jay did in College,
dealing with Mental illness...Straight jacket included!
Lisa, (9patchnurse), won an interview with Jodie Davis and Mark Lipinski for a clip on
their "Quilt out Loud" show explaining what a Q.S.O.S. interview is,
and a bit how it goes...
So great to see you again Lisa!
Marianne Fons was fabulous.
It was Mary Fons, (of QUILTY, ) Birthday! Happy Birthday Mary!
We ended the day with a cocktail party at City Quilter and a viewing of
Noriko Endo quilts... Lovely!
6 Board members small quilts were auctioned off at the event.
I bought Luke's Quilt.
I wonder who the image is? LOL
Johanna, bought mine, and it is on it's way to Florida...
