I entered 4 quilts in the quilt show. My Dear Jane quilt won a 3rd place ribbon.
My Baskets of Blue quilt won a 2nd place "Red" ribbon
This quilt, "Stars all Around" was hanging in a very nice place, as was my "Uncle Henry's Barn" quilt that I posted about yesterday. So I am a very happy camper!
I also sold a quilt, my "Pineapple Nine Patch" quilt.
It was a lot of fun having a booth at the show, even though people thought we had a real shop somewhere and kept asking where it was. We explained that we didn't sell fabric or patterns, just things that we made. I had a "cat quilt" hanging there, hoping that someone would buy it, and it got lots of attention, but didn't sell. I'm not worried about that as I'm sure it will sell sometime. They wanted the pattern for it, etc. etc.
Of course, I had to buy some items - that's half the fun of a quilt show! It took me a while to decide what to buy. I got this "My Country" panel designed by Kathy Schmitz who had a booth. I visited her booth several times before deciding to buy this panel. This will make 6 patriotic pillows to put in a basket or bowl and can be embroidered or not.
I also purchased this panel of birds that will be made into a banner. The designer of the banner had a booth, but I don't know her name - it's not on the banner package. I've seen her books before, but can't remember who she is.
I also bought some more fabrics from Lori
as she was the only one who had 1800s reproductions. This was a bundle of small pieces that I plan to make into a couple small quilts, probably doll quilt size.
I was almost out of cheddars so now I have some! It's amazing that most of Lori's fabrics were ones I had never seen before!
Here are a few pictures from the show. I will post more tomorrow.
|This one won a blue ribbon and was made by Peggy|
Gelbrich, president of the Willamette Valley Quilters (I belong to
|This is the table of Gone to Pieces Quilt Guild|
(where I am secretary). They raffled off baskets of fabrics, etc.
I will post the rest of my pictures tomorrow. I don't want to overwhelm anyone. My goal (hope) is that I will take more time to read and sent out blog posts in 2023.
