Festival of Quilts Con't

This is how the Rust-Tex stand looked at the Festival of Quilts. Here in America we call them booths. My friend, Peggy, who is American and had never been to England before, had to learn a whole new vocabulary.
Bronwen, who lives about an hour from Birmingham, and has been bugging me to come to the FOQ for years. In 1973 I was Maid of Honor at her wedding.

Here is a picture of the the three of us taken in Venice. Bronwen is on the left, Peggy is in the middle, and I, of course, am on the right.

Donation for Houston

This is the piece I am donating to the International Quilt Association's (IQA), Celebrity Mini Quilt Silent Auction.
It is only 16" x 13". And yes those are ½" squares.
Thanks for noticing. Day at the Beach #7
The email I got from IQA said it should be in my trademark style. I spent 10 years piecing My Mini 9-Patch, which has almost 15,000 pieces in it, most of them ½" squares. These 9 patches keep coming off the back of my sewing machine. (I use them to keep the threads engaged when I come to the end of a line of chain piecing.) If you are in Houston be sure to bid on my piece or any of the other wonderful art quilts you will see there.

Festival of Quilt and the Rust-Tex Instructional CD

Many copies of the Rust-Tex Instructional CD that I sold at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, England do not work. They were burned incorrectly. If you have one that is not working please send me your address by clicking on the link below:
I only sold 30 copies and some of them worked, so please be honest.
