And……….if you are a regular reader, you KNOW that I have been working for an entire year, prepping fabric to sell at the show, along with vintage sewing machine attachments, notions, vintage quilts, quilt racks, embroidery, cross stitch, candlewicking items and much much more! (BARGAINS GALORE)  We will a “Fill a bag with scraps” deal and “Fill a bag with TIES” too.   You won’t believe the BIG pieces of fabric in the playpen for you to dig into !  From 2″ to nearly fat quarter sized pieces and LOTS of Neckties too.  Don’t forget to look for me at the Second Time Around booth when you come to the show!! Tell me you are a reader of this blog! 

So, plan on a visit to the Delaware Beaches and come to the quilt show!  There are lots of hotels between Lewes, Rehoboth Beach, and Dewey Beach, Fenwick, Bethany Beach, Delaware and Ocean City Maryland.  If summer includes a visit to the Mid-Atlantic, this is a show not to miss.  When you look at the website, you will see some photo’s of the beautiful quilts from the 2015 show!

Ocean Waves Quilt Guild, Lewes Delaware held a show with the theme of Paying it Forward, highlighting all of the Community Service groups that our guild supports. We had a great show in Lewes DE on July 17 & 18. Our members quilts speak for themselves.    These are just a few of the photos.  Over 250 quilts were on display.  I took photos of a ‘few’ of my favorites.

Note; as you look at the photo’s, the Information Card precedes the quilt.

Besides all those quilts, there were 20 vendors with an assortment of goodies to sell. Our guild did Raffle baskets and a Featherweight Machine Raffle

It was a great show. For information on the show, including who the vendors were and the ribbon winners; follow this link: OWQG Show 2015

As you browsed through, how many famous quilt designers patterns did you see?  There are at least 3 Bonnie Hunter patterns, a Heather Kojan pattern, and many many more!  If you read the display cards, you will find out the specifics of the pattern name and designer, along with the quilter.

Hope you enjoy, and the next time we have a show, I hope you can come!

Quilt Show Today & Tomorrow

Ohio Stars and Rails

Ohio Stars and Rails

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!.
