Early Peek at the Fall Festival Quilts


Yesterday I arranged 35 of my quilts along the balcony at church in preparation for the Fall Festival Quilt Exhibit today. It looks so colorful and pretty. Here's a sneak peek above. I hope the hymnals keep the quilts from falling onto the viewers. I'll let you know how it goes.

 I made this quilt in memory of my two wonderful grandmothers. It has a pearl necklace, lots of vintage buttons, giant rick rack, fans, roses, and teacups with real tea tags attached.  

The Fall Festival is today 9 am-3 pm at the First Congregational Church, Litchfield, CT, located in the center of town on the green. All are welcome.

How divine! I wish I could make it today but since I can't I'll look forward to your blog entry on the quilts. Congratulations on the show Karen :0).

Happy Sewing

That memory quilt is just fantastic...I wish I didn't live so far away! I'm sure the show inside the church (and outside - a New England fall display) will be a big hit!

In stitches,
Teresa :o)
