Last week I finally got the chance to meet Greta of Material Detachment where she lives in Iowa. For the past year we’ve been texting, talking and emailing. I had planned to go to Iowa in August but then saw that AQS would be there in October, so I made plans to visit then instead. Greta picked me up from the airport, we stopped for a quick bite to eat and then we were off to the show. Here are a bunch of photos from the show. Enjoy!
I can’t even begin to think how much time was spent creating some of these amazing quilts! Here are my 2 faves! Both were blue ribbon winners and rightfully so!
All of the quilts had me oooing and aaaahing though.

Greta and her husband are wonderful cooks. Vegetarian never tasted so good!
It was a lovely and relaxing time.
Greta sent me home w/pounds of fabric…
and a beautiful quilt that she co-created.
I arrived back in AZ to happy mail that I won from 2 different giveaways!

Outlander is everything I thought it would be and more! I don’t have cable, but a dear friend subscribed to Starz so we could watch It. I’m very grateful and looking forward to watching episodes 2 and 3 this evening.
