Weekend Edition - Art Show News

(Ann Fahl's coneflower quilt in front, and my 2 little Colander quilts in back.)

Hi Friends!

Just popping in with some weekend doings. This weekend (as I'm sure you know already!) is the Midwest Fiber and Folk Art Fair up in Crystal Lake. I'm going up today, late in the afternoon to visit the vendors before attending the artist reception at the art show from 6-7pm. I have 2 quilts in the show, so pop over for a second and say hi!

Tomorrow is the opening for another show, the Bloomingdale Park District Museum is having an artist reception frokm 2-4pm for 2 shows: Quilt National 2007 "B" Collection in one gallery, and Women Packing Irons - Quilt Art from the Chicago School of Fusing in the other gallery.

Get that yard work done early, and come say hi!

We hung the show 2 weeks ago and here is a sneak preview from that day......
Anne contemplates what needs to go where.

When you have 3 kids in tow, you give thanks for Laura (above), who is always ready to entertain, and Marge (below), who decides to open up the (juice) bar.

Judy unpacks one of her large quilts.

Laura poses with the kids in front of our sign. Laura is happy because the show looks great, and the kids are smiling because we are done and are on our way to get the kids a treat. (In fact, I think Ethan is already on his way toward the door.)

Saw one of your quilts in Crystal Lake today- Perhaps the other was upstairs- Nan and I ran out of steam and cash!
