This picture was taken during the meeting portion of the event after I set up my booth. They have a fabulous group of extremely talented quilters.
Here we are being introduced and getting a chance to talk a little about what we do. I was in great company. I finished my Freda's Hive quilted sign in the nick of time, the night before the local market event. Whew.
I quilted it geometrically and used vintage and reproduction fabric. How about that fabric in the corner - vintage novelty cafe curtain fabric and flower pots. Pretty cute, huh.
Here is a picture of my booth after it was all set up. I used my Freda's Hive beehive quilt to cover the table. I'm still in the process of writing up this pattern.
I've been cutting 9 1/2" squares of my vintage and Japanese fabrics. I call them "Honey Packs". I'll be putting some into my Etsy shop this week, too.
The historian of the UVQG took pictures for their blog post recording the day's events. Thanks Kim. I swiped this pic from their blog. My daughter Laurie (not pictured) was on hand to help me that day.
My pal Paula and her daughter Claire had the booth next to mine. Paula put in a good word for me to be included in the list of local artists. (Thanks Paula) Paula is such a precise quilter. I could learn a lot from her if I just could stand to cut my pieces that small. And she's lots of fun.
I got to meet Mary, finally. Many of you know her as a fabulous quilter and pattern designer. She's so nice and her quilts are just amazing. It was really great to be included in this circle of talented women.
