No that does not stand for I'm Quite Frantic...though that may be true!  The International Quilting Festival has come back to Chicago (well Rosemont to be specific but you know what I mean), and I will be doing a demo (no not of a woman on the edge!) on improv piecing in the Open Studios!  Can't you see how excited I am by how many exclamation points I'm using?!!!!!!!!!!!  The Open Studios are right where you enter the show and there are four separate studios: Quilt, Paint, Stitch, and Embellish.  If you would like to come by and see me (c'mon you know you wanna) I will be in the Stitch studio on Friday June 21st, from 12-2.  Check out Pokey's blog post for a schedule of who will be where when in the Open Studios.  
Oh ya so are you enjoying these completely unrelated pictures?  The story is I cut 14" of hair off to donate to Wigs for ya.  I also made my mother a birthday ya.  I hate pictureless posts so I had to show you something ok?
(In my best announcer voice) Aaaand now, for your reading pleasure I give to you, other things that my family thought IQF could stand for!!!!!! (cheers...cause you gotta have that part)
