First Quilt Show of 2009

Just returned from the most wonderful weekend in Penticton, BC (about a 4 hour drive from my home). I was very honoured when the Penticton Quilt Guild chose my Cabin Fever pattern to stitch for the raffle quilt at their spring show. Since I'd never exhibited at a show in that part of BC before, I decided to participate in their Merchant Mall. Here's a picture of the Cabin Fever raffle quilt. Didn't they do an amazing job? I also was asked to draw the winning ticket--another honour.
The quilt car greeted the visitors to the show, which was very well attended.

This was my booth in the show. The merchants were placed right in the middle of the quilts on display which brought a lot of visitors through my booth and also let me feast my eyes on some beautiful quilts all day.

My sisters came with me and found time to cross-stitch and rug-hook in between cutting fabric.

How neat to see one of my quilt patterns, Now I Know My ABCs, made for someone's grandson and displayed in the show!

I loved this amazing pineapple quilt--it has over 6600 pieces!!!
Thanks to all of you who came by and said hi and told me you had made my patterns. Your words of encouragement meant a lot to me. It was a wonderful time.
