I'll be giving a floortalk to AQC delegates at 9am but Kirsty will be there all day to answer any questions you may have. Come and say hello.

I have been thinking about AQC all day and so wishing I could be there. Now that I see the pictures, I, too, have tears in my eyes. If I only had a private jet!

Well, I think you have us all crying. When the picture of Kirsty holding my little quilt popped onto the screen it was all over for me! It is so beautiful and it looks like so much MORE than I expected somehow. Thank you both so much. Tell us everything. I want to know what people say.

How exciting! Congratulations to you all. It looks beautiful and very inspiring.

Ditto what everyone said -- it looks great! You two are awesome for making this happen. And yes, seeing Kirsty holding one of the quilts from across the world is so so touching (and no offense to Brenda -- if it were she holding a quilt from another continent I'd be equally touched!).

What a long way you have come from your modest "challenge" beginnings. You deserve the recognition that this show will bring.
