Really "Wild" Flowers! by Sharon L. Schlozhauer, Monument, CO

September 10–12, thousands of quilting enthusiasts will gather in Madison, WI to find inspiration, share new techniques, stock up on supplies and celebrate the joy of quilting. Now in its eleventh year, Quilt Expo continues to be the Midwest’s premier quilting destination. I invite you to join me at this year’s event!

It’s a Big Deal!

Here’s a sampling of the highlights of this year’s event. With over 200 educational lectures, sit & sew workshops, and hands-on workshops, there’s something for everyone. Plus you’ll find hundreds of quilts on display.
