Lesley, one of the co-owner of In Between Stitches always creates beautiful window displays for the shop.
I think this display is especially attractive because my sister Gail made the quilt! The pattern is called Madrigal. The original design has an appliqued basket in the center. Gail has a strong aversion to applique, hence no basket. I love the way it looks without it. Great job Gail!
Attractive little tags are hanging above the quilt with meaningful words pertaining to Autumn. This is also a good shot of the checked flange Gail used around her setting triangles.
Speaking of Gail, today begins the start of our Sister Act. Thelma and Louise are headed to Georgetown this morning for the Needle Nellies annual quilt show tomorrow. I'll be set up in the gazebo area with all of my quilts and product as the featured artist. The weather is going to be wonderful, so come on by, say hello, and purchase a ticket to win their opportunity quilt called Woodland Christmas. All proceeds go to the Volunteer Fire Department. I know I'm going to buy a boatload of tickets to support them! The money the Needle Nellies have provided over the years has helped save their community from forest fires. It's a worthy event, and I'm honored to be part of the it.
On the fire front.....all evacuations have been removed for the Butte Fire! Bless the firemen. They are remarkable men and woman who worked tirelessly to snuff the monster out of existence.
There are so many good people in the world. The Amador Valley Quilters donated FIFTY toddler and children's quilts to the evacuation center for the Valley Fire. I was speechless when I heard this. Those quilts are going to bring so much comfort to so many little children who have lost everything. Thank you to my friends at AVQ.....your guild is amazing!
