It's Quilt Show Weekend!

The Blue Mountain Quilter's Guild, of which I'm a member is having it's quilt show this weekend!  We had a busy day yesterday hanging the quilts, and people waiting for the doors to open at 10 this morning - so much fun!  and what a fabulous display of quilts!  We have such a talented group of quilters in our guild.  If you're in the Greater Vancouver area, please try and stop by before it closes at 4 pm on Sunday.  Click here for more details.  Maybe tomorrow I'll remember my camera and will be able to show you some pictures!
As mentioneed in my last post, I got my mug rug(s) for the Flickr Scrappy Mug Rug swap posted off and they have been received now.  Liz seems very happy with them, and I'm so pleased.  A picture-less post is boring, so I'm repeating them here!

I'm still waiting (and not so patiently any more!!!) for mine to arrive - I'm hoping this week's the charm!
Now that the Quilt Show setup is behind me, I'm going to be able to actually spend some time sewing and quilting.  I'm looking forward to that!  My big dream these days is to design and quilt a wholecloth quilt.  I'm not going to start off big probably a  36" square, max, but I'm quite excited about spending some time doing this. I've not actually planned the quilting out on a quilt before - I usually just put it under the needle and then just go!  This is going to be interesting for sure!  I'll be sure to post some progress shots as I go along. 
Of course, I still have my 4x6ers postcard swap - the next theme is crazy quilt, using luxurious fabrics (I do have a few velvets, silks and glittery bits from making those Irish Dance dresses hanging around!), another Winter/Christmas theme Flickr Fabric Postcard swap and a third Flickr group - the Mini QT Swap, which this time round, is a holiday house theme.  Gotta get my thinking cap on!
Happy quilting everyone, and hopefully I'll be around here a little more frequently for a while!

Quilt shows are so much work, but so much fun as well. I hope you get a chance to get some photos. Then I get to go to the show without tired feet!!LOL

I'm so disappointed that I couldn't make the show, Janet. I hope it was a massive success and that you'll post some photos for us!
