International Quilt Festival This Weekend

This weekend is the annual International Quilt Show in Cincinnati, Ohio. Last year was actually the first year Cincy hosted the show, previously it was in Chicago. Both cities are handy for me – I live in Chicago but my parents, sister and brother and their families all live in Cincinnati. Last year I went and had a great time.

I’m guessing this year will be even better. The Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild has an exhibit this year at the show and will hosting a get together Saturday evening at 8pm at the Hyatt Regency. I will be there with my mom and sister. Who is with me??

At the show, I will be carrying my “Who You Calling a Fat Quarter Bag”. If you see me, stop me and say hi!

    Gaaah! I live in Columbus and my little sis lives in N. Kentucky! I would SO BE THERE if there wasn’t a funeral in Tiffin OH that we have to attend.
    I went last year – it was HUGE and all we did was shop! Never even had time to look at the quilts… sad, I know! haha

    I was going to go! I have a quilt in one of the juried shows there (the hoffman challenge) but after having houseguests or traveling for every weekend for the past two months – with a baby! – we decided to take a break. so sad :(. but i knew it wouldn’t be worth going if we were not in good spirits!

    Cool bag Faith! I’ll be at the quilt show on Saturday with my mom. I’m so glad they decided to come back to Cincinnati – I had so much fun last year even though it was exhausting walking around to see everything!

    did you also go to the Original Sewing and Quilt expo last month at Rosemont? I wonder if they’re similar…

    I am a native Cincinnatian but I now live in the Chicago area – on the Indiana side. My sybs and parents still live in the Cincy area, but have moved across the river to Kentucky. I wasn’t aware of the show, but next time I will make plans. At least I’ll have a place to stay! 😉
