Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs is again hosting the Best of 2016. List 5 favorites: blog posts, finishes, best tutorial, what ever is your favorite. Since I do way too many projects thru the year to do a 'finale', I thought this would be perfect to wrap up the year.
I was honored to be selected by Henry Glass Fabrics to be a participant in their Desire To Inspire program. I was sent some lovely fabric that became dear to me and most of the projects made were gifted on to charity and/or fund raising events.
The rest will be about sharing quilting, fabrics, and fiber arts with others because that was a huge part of my year.
Our two local quilt guilds and our County Quilt Barn Trail group were once again asked to participate in a local fiber arts show. I represented the Schoharie Valley Piecemakers Guild , our local shop VroomansQuilts, and the Catskill Mountains Quilters Hall of Fame.
Sharon (one the left) represented the Quilt Barn Trail and Steff (on the right) represented the Peacable Day Quilters. We shared our lovely space with the local Sheep and Wool group and rug hooking class.
That was also the weekend (Saturday) of our 'Airing of the Quilts' and special drive about day for the Quilt Barn Trail. Both local quild's members had quilts out thru-out the county. Yes, Sharon, Steff (these are hers) and I had our lines full that day as well as busy at the venue.
I had the pleasure of assisting my Mother in setting up her honorary show in Arkville, NY as part of the Catskill Mountain Quilters Hall of Fame. Also, drove her to the reception, final class day, and take down of the display. Her exhibit brought a request for a lecture and a trunk show and we are hoping to keep her going as another venue wishes to have a one women show. As many know, my momma is in declining health - we have to give her little things to look forward to.
I was tickled pink that our quilt guild got to host Sarah (a blogger I follow) for a class and trunk show. To share a day with an on-line friend in person was special as well as having my guild get to enjoy her 'hexology'.
I was asked by one of the local guilds to design a 'quilter's bag' with their specifications and then teach a class to make them. I had a lovely time with these ladies and although they were working with the same pattern, their choice of fabrics made each so unique to the quilter.
Thank you Cheryl for hosting and thank you all for visiting,
