We ate a delicious fresh lunch in La Grange and then drove to Round Top to see some historic buildings. Sadly no quilts were involved. On our way back to Houston we stopped off at another quilt shop - Quilter's Emporium. We were warmly greeted and it is another lovely shop with a wide variety of fabric, including lots of civil war reproductions.
It was a fun day but a long 12 hour day so I slept in until 9 am today. Now I'm enjoying some stitching time before going back to the Convention Centre for the announcement of the winners in the different quilt categories.
Hugs, Jan Mac

I'm waiting for my flight from DC to Houston and the internet is fast at the airport so I've uploaded some moe photos of the DAR exhibition. The quilting on the pink and cream quilt was extraordinary. The quilters of those days quilted feathers in the borders as well as other symbols which had meaning for their family. Sorry I hasn't had time or internet access to post the photos in order but you can get the general idea of their workmanship and beauty.
D.C. Has had beautiful warm weather and now I'm off for more quilts inspiration at Houston.
