One Down, Two to Go

Last weekend was our local quilt show, the Watertown Quilt Festival. It seemed to go very well, and I was busy both days. So busy that I didn’t get out of the booth much to take photos. But I did get a few. Our theme this year was “Everything Old is New Again”, and Paula did a wonderful job decorating with antique pieces. Look how cute the stage was:

The two quilts in the background are ones the guild made to donate to various causes such as Make a Wish or charity fundraising auctions.

Our guild members did a mystery quilt for our spring retreat in May. About 25 people signed up to participate, and we had 14 finished mystery quilts in the show!! Good job, ladies!

Here are a few views of my booth:

These are the blocks that were entered into the block contest. They will be assembled into a top to create next year’s raffle quilt.

Our show is not judged, but we do have the attendees vote for their favorite quilt. This year’s Viewer’s Choice was a Bargello quilt by one of my customers, Renae. I was so happy for her, she did a beautiful job on the quilt. Here we both are with her ribbon-winning beauty…..and no, we did NOT plan to wear clothing that matched the quilt – it just worked out that way!

And here’s a closeup of some of the quilting:

That’s the last show for this year, now I just have a few quilting retreats coming up.
