We visited the International Quilt Festival in Cincinnati last week and on the way we agreed that our mission, among others, was to detect trends in the quilt world. It didn't take too long to identify the big one: glitter and shiny things! In fact, it became a quest to note how many different ways you could choose to accomplish that end.
