After the Quilt Show

LKN Show (Medium)Last weekend the Lake Norman Quilt Guild had its quilt show, “Sail Into Quilting.”  I spent Wednesday with the judging and it was very interesting. I was pleased to see how positive the judges were with all the quilts, winners and non-winners alike. On Thursday we had set-up. If you have never been part of a show like this, it is very tiring. There’s a lot of physical labor that goes into it. With everyone having a positive attitude, it goes by quickly and there is much satisfaction when you see how beautiful it all looks.  Above is a pic of the show from above. The two gals who are our design team do an amazing job and have done so for several shows now. I can’t imagine. Logistics is just not in my skill set.

Yeah! Retirement (Medium)

And last, although one of my favorites, this applique that I worked on and completed after my retirement, won an honorable mention.

It will be two years before our guild has another show. Thank goodness, can’t imagine doing one every year!

Come see 200 quilts! I am always amazed and impressed by the high quality of work the members of this guild produce. You will not be disappointed. And there is a style for everyone: Contemporary, Art, and Traditional and a Log Cabin challenge display.. There will also be a gift shop with hand made creations, books and too many goodies to list.  Vendors will also be at the show so that you may get all your creative shopping done! Bringing a significant other and don’t want him/her to get bored?  A Girl Scout troop will host a café with beverages and snacks. What better way to spend a day!
