Random Quilt Show Photos

It's August!

My goodness! I just noticed that I have not posted since the middle of July. What have I been doing? We have been attending our daughter's soccer games and also our grand children's soccer games. We've taken a few rides. Ate ice cream. We spent a day in Alexandria Bay with one of our daughters and grandchildren. We enjoyed a boat ride to Boldt Castle and went to an aquarium.
I did finish a quilt top from a class I took at last year's quilt camp. Marcia Tiernan taught the class and she is now machine quilting it for me. My sister, Mary, and I both took the class and took our tops over to Marcia. I thought Marcia would just pick out the right pattern. Not so! She wanted us to pick out the designs and the thread. After much studying, we decided on several designs. I can't wait to see them. Mary and I want to get the binding on and take the quilts to next month's quilt camp.
We are both taking a class from Marcia again this year. She's a fun gal. It was hard to decide. We liked all the choices and we enjoy taking classes from all the teachers.
It's wonderful to see what other quilters are working on.
When I get the quilt back, I'll post a photo.

Show Photos

Our daughter, Anne Marie, took great photos at the show. I had them printed today and will put in a photo album for our guild's history.

We've had a busy weekend with a graduation Friday night and a party yesterday. Today we took a nice drive along part of the St. Lawrence River. The north country is a beautiful place - we're blessed.

It's Over

The photo above shows some of the projects that will be taught at our September Quilt Camp held at Wadhams Hall in Ogdensburg, NY

A few Challenge entries.

Our 8th Biennial Quilt Show is now a part of guild history. It was a wonderful weekend. The quilts, wall hangings, challenge quilts and other entries were amazing. Our guild members are extremely talented and diverse. First reports call the show a success. We had 499 signatures in our guest book. We wonder how many viewing the show did not sign in.
Chloe Ann and I are collecting our thoughts and asking for feedback from committee members and vendors.

The show was a group effort. We're a great team!

Many photos were taken throughout the weekend. I'll start posting more soon.

Mighty Pines 4-H Club

The Mighty Pines 4-H Club will be demonstrating their projects on Saturday from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM. They'll be making "Bears and Binkies". It's wonderful that our youth are interested in sewing. Be sure to check their table out.

4-H is the youth development component of the Cornell Cooperative Extension system. 4-H helps young people from rural and urban areas explore their interests and expand their awareness of our world. It provides opportunities to develop a greater sense of who they are and who they can become as contributing citizens of our communities, our state, our nation and our world. This mission is achieved through research-based educational programs of Cornell University and an ongoing tradition of applied hands-on/minds-on experiences that develops the heads, hearts, hands and health of St. Lawrence County Youth.
