2013 Block Party Quilt Show... Day 1

Day 1...
 
 was a great success at our quilt show once again!!
 
Today is Day 2 and will be running from 12- 4pm.
 
Unfortunately...
 
 our feature quilter, Irene Roy was not feeling well and couldn't be present.
 
 
This is just a few pictures of her accomplishments throughout the years.
 

 
Irene has such amazing talents in all genres of creativity...

 

 
We wish her a speedy recovery and thank her for her display of inspiration!!
 
For those of you who can not make it to the show.....

We have 10 women in our guild and have 5 guest quilters in our show




 
This show contains all new quilts from the last 3 years of our work....



 
 
There are a total of 243 pieces hanging in this years show!!!
 

 
It is an incredible show of the creativity
and
inspiration from a small group of quilting women.


 
This is just a glimmer of what there is to see!!

 
We have 3 vendors this year...

Thank you for all who came to the show
and
 our families for helping us to put this show on.
 
 
We hope it met your expectations and was an entertaining day for all!!

  2. A wonderful display of artwork in quilted form! I skipped noon lunch and "feasted" on these beautiful quilts instead (and enjoyed the tea and strawberry shortcake!). Thank you for inspiring me to dedicate more time to things that last - like quilts or hardanger. It was a fun time of visiting too. Thanks for all the effort that was put into this great quilt show in our little town of Torquay. Keep up this wonderful work!

  3. What an amazing output from 15 quilters. Too bad I live so far away. I hope it was a successful show for all of you.
