4th Anniversary Quilt Show Pix

Hello Pieceful Quilters:

Wow! What a weekend! Our 4th Annual Anniversary Celebration, Barbeque, Quilt Show, Registration and all around good time, was wonderful. I put a lot of pictures on Facebook, because it is much easier to upload things there, but I know some of you haven't taken that plunge yet, so here is a little bit of a virtual quilt show for you. I will probably add more pictures and captions in a day or so, once I figure out who all the winners are, and get pictures of the winning quilts with their owners. For now, here is a pictorial synopsis of the day:

Katie & I before the show - Yes, we were actually ready before the doors opened!

Rebecca's Madders Quilt - Owned by Sandy Schweitzer
This is the quilt that my fabric line is based on. It is now supposed to come out in December - I haven't turned blue, yet.

Famous Person Siting! Kathy Tracy came to see the show. She has a tiny picture of her next book pinned on to her blouse. The title is still a secret, but I can tell you it is going to fit into our shop perfectly - as usual. Can't wait to see the book in real life!

Julia T. and Mary Z. a couple of our sainted White Glove Ladies

Madelyn Anderson and her helper judge the quilts. This section had the quilts from our Sarah's Circle Sewing Club.
