Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum

My youngest son had a quilt that he submitted to be in the exhibit "Quilts by the Hands of Men" at the RMQM . Last night was the reception and a meet the artists night. So we headed to Golden to attend. We got there a but early ( mapquest said 1 1/2 hours - they were off, or dh sped.... we'll go with mapquest being wrong). So we had about 1/2 hour to kill so we went down to the river and went for a short walk. There are all these really neat bronzes - so the boys swam with the fish.


Then we went into the museum and it was a blast. C is the youngest quilter to have a quilt at the museum - he is 6. We went in and he got his artist name tag and right away E. Bostick a very well known quilt artist came over and shook his hand and congratulated him on his quilt. C was so very excited and honored. Then we went into the exhibit. He gave us all his best pose in front of his quilt.
We looked at that exhibit and at the one by Teddy Pruitt, had a little snack, and then met a lot of artists. They had a little announcement of all the artists and called C's name - he was so proud and he was so little they made him come up front so he could be seen... and he never came back. I think he is a glory hound !! He enjoyed himself so much, and so did my other boys. There was a quilt there called tinker toy and the man who made it must be a math genious. He explained it to us and my oldest son was so taken with the process.... hmmm. On the way home he asked if he could use some of my camo fabrics and black....
