Quilt Show Report

I know . . . I’ve been missing in action for a long time!  There just never seems to be enough hours in the day lately!

We’re getting ready for a big “Super Sleuth Soiree” Workshop on October 29th and there are a million-zillion details that need attended to.  When we start planning one of these events it takes lots of list making, emails, laying awake at night thinking of things and lots of early mornings, to get everything pulled together.

The countdown is now on and it will be a “done deal” very shortly . . . until we start planning for another one of course Smile.

In amongst all of the planning for this workshop, another group that I belong to in Brandon, Manitoba had their Quilt Show and there was lots of getting ready, setting up and taking down for that event.

I’ll let you scroll through the pictures so that you can pick out patterns that you’ve maybe made in the past or have in your stack right now to do . . . it’s always fun to see the colors and borders that other people incorporate into their creations.

There, how did you do?

Did you see some patterns that you recognize?  Or want to make?

Let me know if you need any details on any of the quilts shown and I will track down information for you.

We had four vendors at this Quilt Show, a wonderful lunch, some amazing silent auction items and door prizes.  Getting ready for an event like this does take a bit of effort, but the new people you meet and the memories that are made, far out-weigh the work.

I hope you enjoyed the tour and I’ll be back in a couple of weeks (sooner if I can get my act together!) with a report and pictures of the unveiling of the mystery quilt.

Then I’m going to clean my sewing room!!!!

Well yes, I am late to this soiree. And yes, I did see a quilt I liked. I wonder if you can in deed get the lowdown. It's the little quilt in the upper right-hand corner - the one with the letters that spell Merry Christmas. That's it, that's all.
Oh, and BTW, I hope you had a really great birthday.
