Our weekend quilt show was a big success! It started with a great article in the Arkansas Democrat Gazette!
This article brought in many quilt lovers, including my dear friend from many years, (and owner of several of my quilts), Sally! We had a great visit and lunch surrounded by beautiful quilts and talented quilters!
The photo from the article shows the winning quilt, "Best in Show", in bright pastel lollipop trees, is from a pattern and fabrics from the Glorious Color website. Nora executed it beautifully!
Another quilt they offer was interpreted into our viewer's choice! "Pande" from the "Pandamonium" appliqué pattern, below. This is the pattern photo, not the one from our show....I don't take many photos!
Very colorful quilts, these!
On a quieter note, but with fabulous quilting, is this "Convergence" quilt! Photo shows maker of the quilt top, Sheila and the long-arm quilter Sonja!
[I didn't photograph mine, or any (these photos are borrowed from Facebook!), because I have posted all of my quilts here already! I hade 5 quilts hanging.]
I did some shopping, getting fun fabrics with monster trucks,airplanes, traffic signs, guinea hens! One must support the vendors!
I have already made 2 toddler T-shirt dresses from the fun fabric!
I used some rick rack from Mom's stash....3 yards (package) of cotton no-iron rick rack was 25 cents! Today we pay 10 times that much for 2.5 yards of polyester rick rack. That was1969!
And near the end of the show there was a drawing for the winner of the donation quilt....a sampler quilt with blocks made by many guild members.
The name drawn was on a ticket I had sold....to Alex MacDonald who had worked with me at Hancock's!
He was happy to have won the quilt, which I left at Hancock's break room for him to find!
Still going strong on the quilt vibe, I am working again on my flower garden quilt, and piecing hexagons!
Final review of the quilts I had in the show...above, pieced with selvedges and strings, " Pink Lemonade".
"Scrappy Mountain Majesty"
Time span quilt with blocks made by my grandmother, appliqued by my mother and quilted by me!
" Chinese coins" a Strippy quilt of Riley Blake fabric.
