Quilt Show - part 9


This was the Community Service area at the show. This is the part of our guild that makes charity quilts and we call ourselves the Joyful Quilters. We give away quilts to numerous organizations, our biggest donation goes to Royal Family Kids Camps. We meet a couple Fridays a month at the Calico Cat.



This is our Small Quilt sales booth. Everything is donated from members of the guild and the money from sales benefits the guild.



This was our Desert Cafe. We had refreshments donated by the guild members for people that came to the show.



This was the Boutique, a place for members of the guild to sell items that they made.




I just have one picture of the shopping. We had a lot of vendors and they were all wonderful.



After I worked on Saturday of the show, I did a little shopping. I spent most of my time at The Quilted B .com booth and I met the owner, Barb. She was so nice and such a wonderful, genuine person. Barb has an online store so I thought I would share it with you since it is easy for anyone to shop with her.




I was drawn to her booth and spent way too long in there trying to decide what to get. Everything was so cute and packaged so cute. She had the cutest kits and fabric bundles. I finally decided on this...


and this...



Then I bought this cute coordinating dot and stripe fabrics at the Quilted Gypsy. I hope to show you soon what my plans are for this.


Paper piecing is my favorite technique. I couldn't help myself when I was in the Seminole booth.



After the show was over I traded one of my washcloth bundles from the Boutique for this cute charm pack. Thanks Amber!



Well, I hope you enjoyed the show as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you!!
