Vermont Quilt Festival 2010

One of the most fun parts of class is seeing the designs take personality. Here are two wedges of Mary Nelson's Star - an original design.

On Friday night, we explored downtown Burlington, Church Street in particular where they have many street artists such as this fellow who was playing the digeridoo, an Australian aboriginal instrument.
Cows are big here in Vermont, the land of cheese, chocolate and ice cream. The street was filled with cows painted by various artists. Fellow teacher Jan Krentz and I pose by a plaid cow. Our photographer was Carol Doak. They were my roomies on this trip - way too much fun. I hope to spend more time with them in the future.
