MPS Quilt Show
On Saturday I went for the day and sat with my quilts. I sold and signed books.
It was great. I sold all the books I had with me and took orders for more. But best of all was seeing old friends and talking to people about my work and the book. So many people who had been at the talk the night before came by to tell me that they were inspired to try some small art quilts and/or to put together a challenge group like our 12 x 12 group. I planned to walk through the show and take some photos, but could barely get away from my table to quickly see the show, much less take pictures. It was a beautiful show and set up so well for viewing.
Clark County Quilt show that Gerrie and I went to awhile back. Here they are greeting a child dressed like a princess. Kindred spirits.
The gorgeous orchid on my table was a gift for me to take home, along with a nice gift certificate. I am so proud of the guild that I helped to start so many years ago. A great group of smart, talented and competent women. Their show was flawless and it was really an honor to be part of it.
