Quilt Show

Hi Everyone

We are just finishing up the final day of the quilt show here in Fresno.  I only did one day and I am glad as my feet are still hurting from standing all day!    I had a blast as did everyone else and I believe in the first 4 hours we had over 500 visitors.   I volunteered for the guild’s Country Store for 2 hours and then did security at the end of the day.  There were a lot of beautiful quilted items there and about 20 vendors there selling anything from fabric to comfortable shoes to work in!  This is the first time I had done a show and there is a lot of hard work involved in getting it set up and taken down again and the ladies in charge have this down to a science.  Good thing we only do it every 2 years! In fact, I go back this evening to pick up my quilts.  I actually entered for the very first time 4 quilts and am still excited about it!  

I tried to download the DVD of the show so I could share but apparently it’s protected somehow and will not allow me to make a copy.  Sorry about that.  But I do believe that if you go to sjvqd.org in the next day or so, you can view the pictures there online.  But I do believe that if you go to sjvqd.org in the next day or so, you can view the pictures there online. Just go to quilt show on the blog and it will direct you.

Thanks for letting me share.  I will chat more later.

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
