A Busy Day

Today was one busy day. It started with a long ride to Lindon WA,  to present my lecture, Quilt Toppings for the ladies of the Northwest Quilt Connection. This is a group that gathers 5 times a year to feed their passion for quilting in all forms–Art, Contemporary, Traditional.  They are from British Columbia, Canada and Washington State.  The meetings rotate around so be sure to check back for meeting locations and information.
Show and Share

There is a cute shop in town, I just had to visit.  Owners Sharylann and Thelma are dedicated quilters and have made Tangled Threads into the kind of shop they would want to visit: warm, friendly and relaxed, brimming with books and patterns to inspire, busy with classes and projects, and bursting with a delightful variety of fabrics and notions.

On the way home, I stopped at a great quilt show.  Quilters Anonymous 34th Annual Quilt Show "Quilts Under Northwest Skies". The show is probably the largest annual quilt show in the area. It draws more than 4,000 visitors, from the entire Puget Sound region as well as British Columbia.

 Displayed were over 500 quilts in a dozen different categories, ranging from traditional styles to art quilts and other innovative designs. There is something for everyone to enjoy at the show. Plus a wonderful variety of merchants in the mall.
