While visiting the International Quilt Festival, my friend (Linda) and I were desperate for a Diet Coke and there was NONE to be had….not in the convention center, not in the hotel. What were we going to do?
In desperation, we pulled up Google Maps and found that there was a small grocery store just a few blocks from us and we headed in that direction. Before we reached the store, we found an almost deserted mall that had a small restaurant that had PLENTY of Diet Cokes!!! We were saved!!
I loved the architecture of the mall…..
…and immediately started thinking of quilt designs using those windows!!!
On the way back to the show, we passed a small park where a 15th Birthday Celebration was being held……
It was fun to see the complete disinterest from all of the men in this photo!!
We returned to the show, caffeinated and with our thirst quenched…..
