After our visit to the museum, we had lunch at Macaroni Grill, an Italian restaurant where they put white paper on the table and give you crayons! With visions of antique CQs still running through their brains, Cathy and Gerry K. decorated their end of the table with motifs and seam treatments the likes of which have never been seen before in the Macaroni Grill or any other restaurant!!!
Connie and Leslie.
This is the not-quite-finished product.
After lunch, we went SHOPPING (that's power shopping)! Our first stop was a small but stuffed bridal and fancy dress fabric store in Denver called Allyn's. Talk about a CQer's paradise. They had ribbons, laces, buttons, beads, trims, and the fanciest (and priciest) of fancy fabrics. So much merchandise that there's barely room to walk through the aisles! We kept 3 sales clerks busy for at least an hour.
Cathy is dreaming she's gone to heaven. Oh, wait, we're already there! CQ heaven, that is!
Those bags are all laces, mostly Venise.
Saturday morning we visited the Rocky Mountain Crazy Quilt group for their meeting and heard a presentation from Paulette Reading on conservation and preservation of quilts, which was most enlightening. This is the recently completed banner for the group.
