Well the quilt show was wonderful. We had an incredible turn out. Last I heard we had over 700 people come through. When I wasn't working, I wandered around looking at all the amazing quilts. It was so inspiring!
I entered my Sylvia's Bridal Sampler quilt in the show. This was my first quilt show so I picked the "First Time Entry in a Quilt Show" category. They put my quilt right behind the admissions table which was a great spot since it was the first quilt people saw.
The ladies at the admissions table said that some people thought it was the raffle quilt and wanted to buy a ticket!
It was fun to have my quilt judged and to see what they liked and what I could have done better. It all worked out because guess what? I got a first place ribbon for my quilt!! Can you believe it? I can't stop smiling!
My sister, Ellen, came to visit me and see the show. It felt so good to have her come and support me. That's me on the left and my sis on the right.
She brought my little nephew (remember, I got to be there when he was born).
My husband came too and brought the kids. It was fun to show off all the hard work we have put into making the show a success. I hope you are up for some pictures of quilt because I have a lot to share from the show! Part 2 coming soon...
