It is FINALLY here! A years worth of work, and so wonderful to see the quilts go up yesterday afternoon. We worked from 2:15 to 8 pm getting over 250 quilts hung at Cape Henlopen High School in Lewes DE getting every thing ready!
I had to take a photo of MY quilts that were hanging…My Ohio Stars and rails for Quilts of Valor hangs pretty nicely.
This Boxy Stars quilt that my bee, The Material Girls, worked on together turned out well. Our challenge was to make a Red White and Blue Quilt for Quilts of Valor. One member , Judy B., really got us organized. My part was to work on paper piecing some of the blocks and helping with the layout. Other members sashed and joined the blocks, made the binding and hand stitched it on. The custom quilting was done by Pat Kost. This is the first time I have seen it since we made the blocks in January.
Both of these quilts will be donated to Quilts of Valor after the show.
The very first quilt hung was one of mine and I got to hang it. After looking at this photo, I realized it needs to be on shorter hooks. Oh well, maybe one of our many “quality control checks” caught that. This picture was taken about 10 minutes after it went up….so I am hoping in the next 4 or 5 hours somebody adjusted it!.
So; take a road trip and come to see the show! The vendors were working just as hard as our guild members getting ready!

I promise to take lots of pictures today and tomorrow! I have lots of jobs at the show, including a BARN QUILT demo. So, if you are coming to the show; look for me on Saturday at 11:30 . I will be the one painting back in the corner!
I spent part of the week getting my sample boards prepared – here is a peek at those too:
Time for me to “get busy” !
