Thimble Pleasures Quilt Guild 2014 Booklet

…I helped set up the Vendor area for the Thimble Pleasures Quilt Show with two new friends from our guild.  This year we had some demonstrations in the center of the room.  It was nice form guests to sit down and learn about quilting tips and tools, portable ironing boards, applique techniques and more.

There were over 200 quilts in the show.  It was such an inspiring show!  I purchased some fabric, thread and beads from the vendors.  I am filled with inspiration and cannot wait to start some new projects!

Stay tuned!

Over 1000 guests came to see the show.  Nearly 800 voted on Saturday.  Awards were given for many categories.  There was even a name tag challenge during the show.  Awards were given for categories such as blingiest, funniest, most creative and more!  All in all there was lots of talent and fun!

If you missed the show this year, TPQG will hang another show in two years, 2016 with more inspiring quilts.

 

 

 

I also wrote a new, humorous talk, “Confessions of a Catholic Quilter”.  This was so much fun!  I will be giving this talk to Bose Speakers Toastmasters, St. Mary’s Catholic Women’s Guild in Holliston and Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Guild in Leominster this Lent.

    I found your site just today. Your Pineapple quilt was awesome- I have dreamed for years to sew a such. And have had the ruler for some months, but have not started yet. But best of all was the comment you had about painting your bedroom and setting new curtains. 😉 I have now warned my husband for renovations which may happen after this pineapple quilt.That is the world of a quilter – first you get addicted, then you’ll see your decorations with new eyes and your color world has changed, too.
