Been to the FoQ for a couple of days but as I was on the Trad Group Stands for a few hours I spent most of my free time looking at quilts rather than the stalls! Didn't buy one piece of fabric! Most quilts were good this year, but I preferred Viewers' Choice whole cloth quilt by Sandie Lush which was hand quilted by one of the best hand quilters in the country, to the Best in Show which was also a whole cloth quilt but machine quilted to death and no way could be used as a bed quilt because such quilts are like cardboard and not snuggly at all. I am so sad that hand quilting seems to be a dying art. Intricate machine quilting seems to be the in thing.
