August is my happy month because it is the month when the Atlanta Quilt Festival is held. If you follow me, you know that I co-founded the Atlanta Quilt Festival. Here’s a recap of some of my happy moments from friends to doughnuts.

I met the youngest quilter in the Atlanta Quilt Festival exhibit. Her name is Autumn, and she is 8 years old.

I welcomed visitors to the Atlanta Quilt Festival. We had a large, enthusiastic crowd.

I picked up and delivered the doughnuts to all of the class attendees at the Atlanta Quilt Festival. I was very popular.

I took a class from Sarah Bond. We learned to make her Diamond Stair Step quilt.

I learned new things during the Quilter’s Finishing Retreat. I think Vickie Lord has convinced me to practice my free motion quilting.

I introduced Sarah Bond at her trunk show and presented her with gifts afterwards.

I welcomed Karen Cooper, Executive Director, of the Modern Quilt Guild to the Atlanta Quilt Festival.

I took lots of pictures with my quilting friends, but none as special as the picture I took with Phyllis Stephens. I have loved her quilts since my early days of quilting.

I did it all with my Road Dog Daughter India. Our mantra, “WE DID IT!”
