And here it is as promised!

Friday 3/15/13 and Saturday 3/16/13 we held an event to celebrate quilting! It was a smashing success!

This is the table for Roy Quilt Guild!  Midje, Vivian and Pat!  100_5222

We had over 100 quilts, a Make and Take activity, and all of the local guilds had fund raising tables to raise money for their groups! We also had trunk shows and demonstrations! What a wonderful day!

Pictured here are Patsy and Leslie for the Layton Quilt Guild!  Waiting on some customers!


I spent most of the 2 day event in the Make and Take room teaching visitors how to make bottlecap pincushions! They came out so cute! And we have a few bottlecaps left over. I’d guess we did about 100 of them, so we have a mere 900’ish left! LOL!  Poor Denise had teach alone while I ran around taking pictures!  There’s Loretta and Denise!100_5227

And now, enjoy the quilt show!  Hopefully I got most everyone’s information!  (I’m only showing a few of the quilts, as the lighting didn’t let me take great pictures.  I’m sure it was that, and not my poor photography skills…  LOL!)

100_5234Of course I had to include 3 of mine and 1 of Lorri Basheins!  Mine is the barn, the spring one, and the vintage toy sewing machine.  Lorri’s is the Pioneer scene in the middle of mine!  The picture isn’t great, but the pieced border has numerous 1/4 inch HST’s1  Be still my

    Soooooo thankful for your kindness of adding these beautiful pics to your post. They are all beautifully made, and I really like the Easter Quilt very colorful. Many thanks for showing example of the make and take. I’ll sample that idea. Mtetar
