I attended the annual Minnesota Quilt Show which was in Duluth, Minnesota.. the last year it will be in Duluth at least for the next few years. It will alternate between St. Cloud and Rochester for the next four years. (This is decided by cost of the venue.) I love visiting Duluth, so I'm sad that the show will not be there for perhaps several years or forever.
As always, the quilts were awesome, and it was a lot of fun to see them all. Here is a very small sampling.
I saved this photo because I want to remember this idea of the middle blocks being jiggled to an on-point position. Not that I'll ever make a full Dear Jane quilt... but I have the book and maybe, just maybe.. some day... I might??

My cousin and I visited two quilt shops outside of the vendors and the show. One is quite a drive out of town (Duluth) on a farm. We had fun there, but learned that the shop is closing in July. The other was a shop I'd never heard of before, Creations, in the city of Duluth; also a fun place, and we found some good sales there.
Next year's Minnesota Quilt Show will be the 40th annual show and will be in St. Cloud, June 14-16, 2018. See you there?
