Love doing our local quilt show which is every other year.   What an amazing job the guild does preparing and executing this show.  From the scrumptious food from a local caterer, Dolores and Daughter, to the variety of quilts on display .  .this show is full up with interest and creativity.   It was a busy show but i managed to snap a few pictures which you can view by clicking on the Slideshow at the bottom of this post.

Nothing warms my stitching heart more than young stitchers carrying on the  sewing traditions.  
Melina, 16, who was helping in Grandma Joan''s sewing machine booth made good use of one of the crank Singers and stitched herself up a blouse in just a couple of hours.  She makes up patterns for many of her own clothes.

The top was even cuter.

The Junior Quilters had a good showing - Love that.
Just one of the many styles on display.

And maybe at a local show . . . a little family member might drop by.
My Little Pixie Cup!
Gave her a lesson on the cash register.  One can't have too many helpers you know.

Please enjoy the Slideshow below.
Unfortunately there were many in cubicles that i could not get a good distance from to snap a shot . . but here is a sampling of some of this shows wonderful quilts.
