Guild Meeting and Quilt Show Entry Deadline

Today was guild meeting and since the President is on vacation to Florida, this was my first time running the meeting. We are gearing up for the quilt show and one of the topics was getting volunteers signed up to work at the various jobs for the show. My responsibility for the show is the Guild Demo Area. At least I can offer people the opportunity to sit down and sew for 2 hours. I made a poster for signups and about 1/2 the time slots are full.

It was also garage sale day at the guild meeting where members could set up tables and sell things they no longer want. I tried to resist but ended up with a tote bag that my friend Jan makes and a lime green wristwatch. It was fun.

It was also the last day for entries to be submitted for the quilt show. I decided to enter 3 very different quilts. Fortunately, they do not require that they are quilted before entry - of course they need to be quilted before being shown.

First is my color rainbow. It is huge! When I quilted Mary's it turned out to be 90 x 114. I made the center of the quilt in February at Retreat but kept putting off getting the borders on. There are 5 separate borders. First one is the black background to float the center, then one of the light fabrics, one medium and one of the darkest. It is then finished by another border of black. Got it done just in time to take the photo to put in with the entry form.

The second one is the black and white 4 patch kaleidoscope that still isn't quilted. I hope to get that done before leaving next weekend on the cruise.

Last is a wholecloth quilt. The fabric was dyed by a friend Susan Rice who is a member of my Allatoona Quilt Guild. This one is about 44 inches square and is beautiful, even before quilting. I also have a large queen sized piece that I want to quilt but will do that some other time.

We will find out in August of the quilts are accepted as it is a juried and judged show but hopefully these will make it in.
