My Saturday in the Rio Grande Valley………..

Was spent at a fab quilt event on South Padre Island, Texas.

IMG_5302  The RGV Guild is uber organized and really knows how to pull such an event together! Previously held in McAllen, the move to the Convention Center on the Island was wonderful!!!! Following are the photos of the day. Many vendors ringed the perimeter of the main hall with military quilts hung high above. The center area held the quilt display with various adjacent halls holding other displays, a boutique and a quilted garment fashion presentation. Grab a cuppa and sit back……………
