Carol Veillon was on her way to the Houston quilt market.
Could she drop by to interview me?
I corralled some willing friends (fans of the magazine) to help dress the set

We hung our Paducah prize-winning dog quilt.
After a flurry of activity things looked pretty good.
Carol was primarily interested in my antique quilt collection.
They photographed a few reproduction quilts.

I never get to see these so it was great to see them up.
Carol and I went through the quilt closet.
Deb and Linda hung quilts and Deb photographed.
Here's a mid-19th century ten-pointed star.
