I know ... you're asking what does the Tour de France have to do with quilting. Well, not much really, but let me explain. I really enjoy the Tour and have been watching it for a number of years now. And yes, I get up at those very early pre-dawn hours (West Coast time) to watch it.
Well, Quilts Inc. decided to put on a quilt show in Long Beach this year. Yea for the west coast. I decided to go to the Long Beach International Quilt Festival (more about that later) and in doing so I would be giving up the final 3 days of the Tour. I was okay with that. So while in Long Beach I just figured that I would find out the results on ESPN or some other sporting news. I was pleasantly surprised to find the Versus network while watching TV and relaxing in my room after spending the day at the quilt show. How could I ask for more.
