Quilters Are Rule Followers

Today I am in California at the Pacific International Quilts Festival to see some amazing quilts. Since I'm functioning on ABBA-time, I arrive plenty early and have to wait for the doors to open, along with a number of other quilters. Funny thing is that instead of jockey-ing for position to get through the doors we all line up nicely in a single-file line. There is just something comforting about knowing there are people out here that still understand the simple rules of courtesy.

Of course, it'll be a totally different story when we get inside the convention center and are actually looking at the quilts. From experience I know that all these nice quilterly women/men get tunnel vision and don't realize there are others who want to look at the quilts as well or who will walk through your picture without a care.

Can hardly wait!! I always leave here with lots of motivation!!
