A concert and signature

Back in January of this year, I revealed my Tangled Textiles challenge piece for the MUSIC theme.  I posted about it here and here.

Well last week Mr. Mills had a concert here in my home town.  I had tickets and you guessed it, I took my little quilt with me to see if he would sign it.

The concert was fantastic!  It was just as advertised..."An Intimate Evening with Frank Mills."  He spent the evening playing the piano and talking about the various periods of his career.  As with most concerts, there was an opportunity to purchase some of his CDs.  Those were doing a brisk business even before the concert began.

At the end of the concert there was an opportunity to have Mr. Mills sign CDs so I took a chance.  I managed to remember to bring along a fabric pen and stood ready.

This picture was taken just before he signed my quilt
This one was while he signed it.  I was so nervous (don't know why) that the picture turned out blurry but you can just make out the quilt in the lower portion of the picture.  (apologies for the very poor quality.)

and here is the final result.  Definitely a keeper!!!
