Des Moines Quilt Expo

My mom and I headed to Des Moines this weekend to check out the AQS Quilt Expo - Des Moines. Unfortunately, I can't share the photos I took there with you because something happened when I copied them to the computer. They show up as "Image Invalid". What a bummer. There were some nice quilts there that I would have liked to share with you. I'm irritated, but trying not to let it get to me.

So, instead... I can share the photos I took at Fons and Porter's Quilt Supply in Winterset, Iowa. Somehow those photos came out fine. I'm not sure what happened to the quilt show photos.

We saw two celebrities on this little trip. We saw Marianne Fons of Fons and Porter at her quilt shop in Winterset, Iowa. We also saw Eleanor Burns at the Quilt Show in Des Moines. How exciting!

Wow, I have always wanted to go to Fons and Porter. That sounds like a prety neat adventure

That would be so fun to go to. I would love for my Nonnie to teach me how to quilt. We have several in our fam that she's made for us and they're so special!
