The Things with Wings quilt show has now ended. By all accounts it was a HUGE success. It was well attended by men and women alike. Something for everyone. Many asking us to do it again next year and hoping to enter their quilts in the show! Very exciting!!
Over the next week, I will be editing the photos of every single quilt that was entered into the show and uploading so all can see.
Right now I would like to acknowledge some of the fabulous people and happenings.
First up, our great vendors!
Julie of Cowles Quilting was busy demoing the Gammill during the show.
Close to Home was represented by Janet and Denise and these girls are great!
Wilma and Jim of Christian Lane Quilters shared there unique wares and quilting.
Barbara, her husband and her mom from Six Gables Designs had many different patterns and designs that were shared.
Look at this cute display!
My mom helped me in my booth all weekend. We enjoyed being tucked under the wing of a plane. I couldn't have done it without you, thanks Mom!
My very good friend Justine was my right hand AND left hand "man" throughout this show. It is with her contribution, in more ways than one, that this show was a great success!! Justine, I can't possibly thank you more... maybe Hawaii???
Don, one of our most prolific art quilters, had some unbelievable quilts on display. He drew a crowd... a sort of harem.
Sue Reich gave two riveting lectures on her WWII quilts.
Here is Don and his wife Eunice, next to both of their quilts. Eunice's quilt is on the left and Don's on the right. By the way, not only do they both quilt, but they are both pilots!
Here is a photo of myself, Sue Reich, and Susan Orred. Not only am I thankful to everyone, but especially these two ladies. Sue Reich for showcasing her impeccable collection of WWII quilts, lecturing to the Veterans and to the show goers. Susan Orred who is the Director of Development and Marketing at the museum, without Susan and ALL her guidance and her endless hours with me and all the volunteers, this show would have never happened. Thank you, Susan!!
All the proceeds of this show benefitted the New England Air Museum, please visit them it is a little gem tucked conveniently in CT.
A crowd has appeared for the drawing of the wonderful baskets that were raffled off by the Hearthside Quilters of Harwinton, CT. There were many happy winners!
Our viewer's choice ribbon winner for the Things with Wings challenge, Dottie!!
And our viewer's choice winner from our main exhibit, Don!
We had a table set up for crafts and demos. These two lovely ladies helped our show goers make origami cranes.
The other side of the table had quilting demos going on, and all these ladies sat and sewed!!
After the quilts were all down, we had a very organized check out process courtesy of Justine.
And at the end of the show we all felt like this...
|I know it is blurry... sorry she was moving too fast.|
Hope you enjoyed the journey, check back for a full slideshow of all the quilts entered in the show.
Don't forget to stop back tomorrow for the 13th block in the Blogger's BOM.
Until Next Time...
