Sharing fabric cuttings with my worldwide friends

Come on Over...

Today is day two of our local quilt guild's annual quilt show so if you're in the area I hope you take advantage of the opportunity to come see our quilts.

All details can be found here http://www.quiltersunlimited.org/quiltshow/

 On Thursday the show got set up.  As you might recall I have a quilt in the "Inspired by the Beatles" project. Those 150 quilts are currently "on tour" and the entire collection is on exhibit here at the QU Show; many of the 150 quilts were made by QU members. Above we see the first box being opened on Thursday afternoon and the volunteers are going to unpack the quilts and get them up on the quilt racks.
 By Friday, the show is on and here we can see the quilts being admired. I hope people take time to actually look at the quilts after they have photographed them!
My "TOM Flies Free", the quilt I made from the Barbara Brackman project "Threads of Memory" in 2014 is on display. Additionally "Sarah's Troubles" from the Barbara Brackman "Dixie Diary" project is on display and "Sticks Adrift in a Stony Sea".

If you tire of looking at the quilts you can have some retail therapy with lots of fabulous vendors.

In between visiting the quilt show I want to make time to also visit my friends who are showing, and selling, their art in our Spring ArtFest on the Green. There will be lots of lovely art for all to see at this event and perfect browsing for summertime gift needs whether for graduations, Fathers Day, weddings or yourself. There is also a plein aire painting competion and a quick draw on Sunday morning when you can see art literally being made.

Maybe I'll see you at one or the other event!

Hi Dorry,
The quilt show looks beautiful. Your contributions are fabulpous, as usual. It is always an added pleasure to know the stories behind the work of your hands.
Well done.

Your TOM stars glow against your dark background and the very dark drape of the show display - its stunning! Hope you had fun at both events.
