Last Saturday I was a vendor at a quilt show. The quilt show was put on by the ladies of the Macon Piecemakers Quilt Guild. They have 15 members. The show was of quilts made and/or owned by members only. Those 15 ladies displayed almost 175 quilts that day! Amazing!
Not to mention the amount of work they had to have put in planning and getting ready for the show, and then putting it together and hanging all the quilts.
I was very impressed. The show felt cozy. There were lots of vendors. The church ladies fixed plate lunches, which were so popular that they sold out!
My best friend, Rose Marie, came down to help me with my booth, and we both got to talk to so many quilters that passed through that day. I had a blast, even though it doesn’t look like it. Here’s a picture Rose Marie took of me sitting in my booth. I look like I’m about to pass out from exhaustion! I swear I was having a good time! (I don’t photograph well . . .)
Of the 175 quilts hanging in the show, there were at least 14 that I had machine quilted for those ladies, plus I machine quilted their raffle quilt, which was won by the husband of one of my senior classmates in high school, so I know it will have a good home . . .
There was an article in the local paper about the show. I’ll be clipping that out to save. It was a good day . . .
