Long Beach Quilt Show

My mom and I attended the Long Beach International Quilt show this past weekend and had such a great time! It was the first year that Long Beach hosted one of these events and the turnout was huge! We heard that they had 15 thousand people the day before we went and that was a Friday. There were over 1000 quilts on display and they were beautiful! I took a lot of pictures but haven't had a chance to upload them to blogger yet. I will hopefully do that in the next couple days. There were also hundreds of vendors and we had so much fun wandering around and picking out fabric for future projects. We actually spent 7 hours at the quilt show and we barely were able to see the whole thing.
I can't wait to post photos of some of the wonderful quilts that were on display from all over the world. :-) We were lucky to have the show in our own backyard.
