Quilt Show and Christmas!

Well, the Vancouver Quilters' Guild 2018 Harvest of Quilts show has come and gone.  I had just entered one quilt in the show this time around, my blue and green "Give and Take" quilt and .... it won Viewer's Choice 3rd place!  We had great weather for a good turnout with lots of people showing up to  see all the quilts we had on show.  I made a few connections with potential customers too!  
I've been getting started on making some more JOY table runners since they were such a big hit last year for Christmas.  Since I was doing a mainly sit-down job (door security) at the Quilt Show I took along a couple of runners that I had started to have something to work on while I sat and chatted with people.  A lady came along and immediately loved the red one I was working on and offered to buy it when finished.  I was also working on a blue & gold one that she said she liked and would think on that one.  Today she came by to get the red one and bought both!  I've got a multi-coloured one in the works and started cutting out circles for a blue and green one last night.   

I made a couple of other connections with people who want their quilts hand-quilted, so it looks like I'll be busy for the next little while getting those and more JOY runners done.  Busy is good!
