The show was lots of fun as usual. We went Friday morning and by noon was quite crowded but thinned out quickly. For starters there were not as many vendors which was a bit of a surprise. Also there were not as many quilts that were exhibited and judged. There were some really nice ones of course but not as many outstanding ones as usual. We always look forward to that part of the show and were disappointed. We didn't even vote for the viewer's best. Now for the quilts on display. This year there were more on display than were on the exhibition side. We really enjoyed them. Some of the quilts from your guild were many times better than those in the exhibition. Truly, you ladies in the guild did a great job and your quilts were very creative. No sugar coating!!! I like working with the wall hanging size myself. - Janis
Sky Lines will next be in the NQA Annual Show in Columbus, OH in mid June. It will then be on display in Powell at Quilt Wyoming in July.
This year's "Under The Sea" challenge was discussed. It was decided that a 4 inch sleeve should be sewn into the top seam for hanging. Kathy will provide more info to all the participants. Remember the size for Under The Sea is 18" to 24" wide and 72" long. It should be completed by the August meeting, and will be displayed at Yellowstone Quilt Fest in September.
Cheryl gave the program on fabric painting using Inktense pencils, and provided a handout. She made a beautiful small quilt using them. Unfortunately no-one remembered to bring a camera.
Next month Lili will do a program on Fantasy Landscapes. Bring hand needle felting tools and materials if you have them.
