Sharing from the Expo this past weekend and Sew-in Reminder

As usual, what a success.  Success in meeting prospective newbies to the QOV mission!  New piecers, new quilters and promises of donations!!  We had two presentations--always a bonus!
Story on her...  Jane and I had lunch with her to find out we had a Veteran in our midst!  Invited her to stop by the booth, we had "something" for her.  She had planned to all along and mentioned she loved this one "flag" quilt we had hanging.  So, after her class she came back and we had the honor of presenting that flag quilt to her.  She was so surprised!  I do have pictures of the presentation, but having difficulties uploading.

This is Alyvia.  Her story, she was at our booth last year and came back to make a block!  She made a block earlier in the day and when she came back to make another block, she found her block already put into the 4-block and onto a quilt top!  Thank you, Alyvia.  Keep on quilting and see you next year!

I do have more pictures but wanted to post what I could  for now and will try again for the rest.

Great weekend and look forward to our sew-in on Tuesday.  Prairie Shop Quilts, 1911 W Wilson, Batavia (for our newbies).  We bring our sewing machines, filled bobbins, quilting supplies and a dish to pass of course.  Shop opens at 10 AM.  See you there!
