A Well Oiled Machine

We haven't had a full crew at quilting till today

With such great weather,

Someone is always doing something 

That's what happens when you're a bunch of farm wives! 

Today we were only missing a couple
so 
we decided to start a donation quilt

This was a snowball quilt from Missouri Star. 

We started at 9 am


Stopped for an hour lunch
And
By 2pm that quilt was ready for the long arm 

Even a label and binding were prepped!!

We could have made two!!!

Great job, everyone!!

Christa...
for the Block Party

Quilt Show 2016 and Bed Turning

Well, I think that we have another successful quilt show under our belts!  We had a good day with perfect weather, great food and above all, fabulous quilting friends from miles away.  We are so blessed to call many of these women our friends.  I didn't take many single photos of the quilts, but more general photos.  I hope these pictures give you a good idea and feel to our day.
Ground work
Justin got us started with hanging our largest quilts along the walls
While other members set up the tea tables

We had a lot of great feedback in regards to the bed turning.  I thought it was the best part of the show!

All of us wild, wild women of the Block Party Guild!!
Terry, Colleen, Jane, Vernelle, Theresa, Char, Chris
Narrie, Christa, Tracey, Lori and Maryann
We would like to thank each and every person who took time out of their busy lives to drive to our little town, pretty much in the middle of nowhere, to support our show.  We put on a decent show, but in our guild's opinion, its our fellow quilting friends who we get to see and chat with that make our show a success!!  Thanks for coming out.
