Several of us came in and priced all the items for the Boutique and I was worried that we would not have enough items!! It took about 8 people 2.5 hours to price and pack! We had wonderful items!!!!
and even with Sunday being half price for most items we made over $2,100!!
This is the most that we've ever made at the Boutique and the Silent Auction.
I'm not sure anyone is that interested but this is for me to remember while still
fresh in my mind.

We had our Bi-Annual Quilt Show the first week-end in October. The show went so well! We had lots of visitors, teams all worked well together, our Boutique sold a thousand dollars more than it had ever sold. It was an exhausting three days but so much fun!!!!!!
The following quilts are some that were in the show. They are in no order but the first one here took all of the ribbons. I love everything about the quilt!
and I call it City Scape Reflected
The reflected came where I sewed the last row on
wrong and decided that would be the reflection
This is hand drawn, with hand embroidery and is about 12"x12"
That I did.
This is a little 12"x12" I did with scraps
The following quilt I made with selvages.
I hope everyone is having a good week. It's fall break here but we haven't done much. It is getting cooler all the time and I love the fall.
Have a great week!!!

There is a lady in my guild that makes beautiful quilts out of bits and pieces. That's what I'm working on when I have a minute. Right now I'm doing a lot of binding to get some quilts ready for our local quilt show that is coming up the first weekend in October.
These are photos for a little road trip we took on Saturday. I just drive, point my camera and shoot. Sometimes I get what I hoped for and this time I wanted the barn. Love old barns.
Corn is drying up and it won't be long until the farmers will be in the fields. Looks like a great crop !
I'm going to attend my first Day Guild meeting this morning. I can do this now that I'm retired. The Day Guild has I think 70 plus members but the Evening Guild has 20 plus but we are growing!!
Friday I'll go to the Quilt Show in Rising Sun Indiana. They are having it on a Casino Boat! I had signed up for a fabric dying class but not enough people signed up - very disappointed! I've been in contact with the instructor and she lives a little over an hour from me so I'm going to see if some other people would like to go to her studio for lessons on fabric dying.
I hope everyone is having a great week.
