The last few days have been a whirlwind of activity and I'm finally getting around to posting the pictures from the quilt show in Georgetown, CA from last Saturday. It was a beautiful day for a show.
As the featured artist, I set up in the gazebo area. By afternoon, Gail and I were very glad to be in the shade as the sun climbed higher in the sky, and the temperature heated up.
I was playing around with the panoramic setting on my phone, and was able to get a nice shot of most of the inside.
The 13 Needle Nellies outdid themselves this year. The quilts were fabulous. Gail and I had a chance to see everything before the crowd arrived......and they showed up in large numbers to support the Needle Nellies and the volunteer fire department.
This year's opportunity quilt was Woodland Christmas by Bunny Hill Designs. ALL of the proceeds from raffle ticket sales, go directly to the Volunteer Fire Department. Over the past several years, the Nellies have donated over $50,000!!!
Next year.......insert drumroll here, the Opportunity Quilt is Toyland Tree by Sew'n Wild Oaks....that would be ME!
The incredible quilt the Nellies made brought a glisten of a tear to my eye. One lucky winner is going to have an heirloom quilt gracing their home Christmas after Christmas. I'll be posting a link so you can start buying your tickets now! With your help, we can make this the biggest year yet for donations to the Volunteer Fire Department.
