Elvis has left the building….the Quilt Show is over and the Boutique has closed its’ doors on another successful year. At least I think it was successful…..we took home about a third of the items we brought in. Not gonna lie, Sue and I were a bit nervous. You never know if you have enough items to display. Will the attendees be interested in these types of hand-made quilty goodies? Priced too high or too low? In the end, we did a fine job displaying, and hopefully the donations sold covered most of the expenses of the quilt show.
In all the craziness, I was able to “finish” a quilt for the Show. Now mind you, I started this quilt in 2013 – I’d applique a handful of Dresdens, then toss aside (hide in the closet) for a while. Pull it out of the closet, applique a few more Dresdens and toss it back in, well out of sight. There comes a time when enough is enough and I sucked it up, and finished it.
My finished Edyta Sitar basket framed wall hanging. Did they have to put it right next to Sue's (quilt buddy, co-director of the Boutique) kick-butt zillion paper pieced star? Can a girl get a break?
By the way – Sue received 3rd place in the small quilt category for this lovely!!
