Quilt Show week is over

Did any of you find the time to see any of the wonderful quilt shows in the local area?

I popped by the Ailsa Craig show on Thursday night and was thankful it was open late one night that week. The quilts were amazing and very artistic. Bought some purple fabric from the many vendors so our church can use it for our upcoming prayer quilts.

Friday AM I quickly stopped in the market downtown to see the CMQA show and saw Kelley and Carol who I have not seen in a long time and voted for Kelley's quilt for viewer's choice.

I then went to Perth Hall to see the merchant's mall and the Invitational Quilt Show where Heather Stewart's Snow Goose quilt was hanging and was surprised to see Willi Powell's quilt, that I quilted, there too. Both looked beautiful in the show. Unfortunately I did not get to the juried show as time was running out and it started raining and I did not want to walk across to the other building.

Hope you all found some time to get to at least one of the shows and thanks to all the hard working volunteers at all the shows.
