Iron Quilter---North Carolina!

I'm heading home today after two wonderful days teaching at the North Carolina Quilt Symposium in Charlotte, NC. I met some wonderful, gracious warm and friendly people who made me feel so welcome. I hope to return and teach again.
Last night we were treated to the Iron Quilter event, where famous quilters worked under a time limit to prepare three "entrees" for the judges. It was a delightfully entertaining evening for all! Since the Symposium was held at the Johnson and Wales University that has a large culinary department, there was a demonstration kitchen in the auditorium.

The audience was decked out in their chef hats and ready!

Chef Daisy Blade (Karen Stone) and her sous chef were quickly at work! the secret ingredients at that each chef were required to use were a frilly lacey type fabric and one with flourishes.

Chef Goddess of the Last Minute (Robbi Joy Eklow) and her sous chef prepare tasty appetizers with a snazzy fish fabric.

Another part of the contest is complete and ready for judging!
 The judges, David Taylor, Elin Waterston and Laura Wasilowski, had a hard time choosing the winner and decide to call the contest a draw.The evening was great fun and a delightful way to end a very successful event!
