Quilt Show this Weekend

Good Morning to all of you. I have been preparing for our Quilt Guild's Annual Quilt Show. I am going to enter some quilts for the first time ever. I will be entering 2 small Paul Klee inspired applique pieces, my scrappy 9 patch, the still to be completed Western Quilt...

Needless to say I have been stitching like crazy. I have one more cattle brand to stitch on the western quilt and binding. Nothing like waiting until the last minute. I needed some motivation to finish this one and this is it. I think I will get it done!

I also volunteered to paint some sandwich boards to place around town the day of the show. I have them complete and I need to do a bit of touch up today. I learned quite a bit on this project. I now can tell you what not to use when making stencils for spray painting lettering. Thankfully my neighbor had some sturdy plastic I was able to cut the stencil from and use spray adhesive to hold the stencil in place while I sprayed the paint.

I will return next week and fill you in on the adventures at the Gold Beach Quilt Guild Show.


  1. I was a vendor at the Gold Beach Quilt Show many, many years ago, when I had my quilt shop in Ashland. I still remember what a great show it was and how much fun I had. I hope it hasn't changed. I love your quilt posted here. Wonderful color, and I am quite crazy about the dots!

  2. Agreed, good luck Connie! Your quilt is a winner in my books. Congrats on entering your first show. How exciting!!!

  3. good luck at your show Connie and good on you for spray painting, i would get it everywhere except where it was supposed to be!!

  4. Good luck and have so much fun!
