Thimbleberries and a quilt show

I finished another quilt for Marsha the Thimbleberries lady.  She really does seem to have an unending supply of finished Thimbleberries tops, I have another one from her waiting it's turn to be quilted.

Yesterday was a meeting day for Prairie Quilt Guild and it was a long business meeting since this is the last meeting before our show. When I first moved here and attended my first show, I was flabbergasted to see what a huge show they put on!  This is now the third show that Peter and I have helped with and I am still amazed at what this guild does every two years. 

This year we will hang over 900 quilts, about 200 of which will be judged.  Our judge this year is Anita Shackelford and she will also be teaching some classes.  The show is called Common Threads because it includes displays from other local sewing related groups.  You can check out the show website at:  The show is  well worth a visit to see all the quilts and visit the 70+ vendors.

On the day our guild meets many quilters have lunch before the meeting at La Galette, a nearby restaurant with incredible pastries.  I usually manage to not order one, but Peter is famous for eating one with coffee as his lunch.  I planned to get a picture of him yesterday but he ruined my plan by eating a normal lunch.  Here is a picture of the dessert case instead.


  1. OMG...over 900 quilts....that's amazing....I hope you get a chance to take a few pictures. Good luck with the show and your entry(ies)
