Quilt Market in a Nutshell

Quilt market, fall 2012 was a real adventure!
We, Kathleen (my mom) and I headed off early Thursday morning, it was pretty snowy here in the Utah mountains, about 15 minutes after we left we were rear-ended by a truck that lost control. It was pretty scary and we were pretty nervous that we'd miss our flight. Our car wasn't crashed to bad so we headed off to the airport in the crashed car and made it to the plane just before they closed the door!
I was a little picture happy while there, so here are just a few of the pictures I snapped. :)
