The two quilts above are the result of a black and white strip exchange in the guild. There were a couple of others there, also, but I did not get them pictured. Great quilts.
This is the result of a class given by Linda, our guild paper piecing expert - and she does fantastic work. Designs all of her quilts on EQ7 and is now making up her own patterns which are being sold in quilt shops. If I were younger, I would be knee deep in her class! She does it free one day a month and has a good bunch of students! This is the result of one of her classes. Very impressive!! Two other class members had their pieces in also and it was so cool to see the different fabric combinations. All three were equally beautiful. Good job, Linda and students!
So there you have a small sampling of the quilts we displayed this past weekend. I believe we had 600 or more come through to ooh and aah over our work. So many tell us they look forward to our show each spring and have been coming for a long time. I think we started having them around 1999 or 2000 so it's been quite a while. There is no room for vendors, but we have a bazaar with some handmade items, lots and lots of books and magazines, unwanted fabric, quilting tools, you name it. We do very well on that little venture! Actually, some of the show goers hit the bazaar first. On Sunday everything is half price and most everything sells. The girls who were in charge of our show this year did a great job!! Fun weekend.
Wanted to say that I know spring is here!! We have the sweetest little old lady up the street who is in her mid nineties. She has a tricycle. Today I saw Eleanor ride by on her trike! One of the nicest ladies I have ever met. Bless her heart!
