Quilt Show Meeting

Last night my quilt guild in Manteca held the first quilt show meeting. Only 8 months till the quilt show. I do believe this is the earlest quilt show meeting since I've been a member. But it is good, we got lots done and input and our ideas is what the quilt show chair was looking for. By the way the quilt show chair for 2007 is one of our only male members!! His wife has been co-chair so he know's what its all about and the work involved. As is true with many quilt guilds the same people do the work and do the same jobs at the quilt show every year so putting it on is rather easy.

Coming into work this morning there was lots of smoke in the air from the fire in Del Puerto Canon. I hope they put it out soom as the smoke really messes up the valley air. I'm afriad that this year is going to be a bad year for fires since all the rain we received this spring made all the grass and brush grow.

On Tuesday night I drive into Manteca and attend a small stiching group that meets in the library. Sometimes we lug in our sewing machines and work on projects but mostly we do hand work. As the farmers market is going on on Tuesday night in the park behind the library and parking is hard to find I've been doing hand work. The block of the month for July is a red work block and I've been working on that. But tonight I will be working on the ring bearer pillow for my good friend T's daughter's wedding. I'll try and take a picture of it and post tomorrow.

It is so nice to be able to quilt with others, isn't it? That is a great idea to start meeting about a quilt show and figure out who is doing what. You're right, normally the same people wind up doing the same thing, mostly because others are afraid to volunteer. With this much planning, the show is bound to be a success.
