Fun with friends at previous quilt festivals......

Every year it gets better:  the time I share with friends at quilt festivals!  Many of us rarely see each other outside of these events so we make up for lost time while we are gathered together.  The subculture of mixed-media and fiber art brings us together, but the sheer joy of spending time together bonds us.
Here are a few images, randomly selected, of previous gatherings:
