Quilt Show Today

Thursday was the opening day for the Bayside Quilters first show in the idyllic setting of Oxford, Maryland. The weather cooperated with us and we had a picture perfect day!

 First thing in the morning Chris and Kris were setting out things made for outreach.

Laura and Elaine were at the admissions table to great our visitors. 

The church where we are holding our show is small so we were limited to the number of quilts that could be displayed.

The entrants were chosen blindly by category and size.

If a member only entered one quilt, it was chosen. If you entered a miniature or a wearable you might have gotten two items in.

Each viewer is given a ballot with admission to vote for their favorite.

After the show 3 places will be awarded for Viewer's Choice.

Out of 70 entries, I had the privilege of quilting about 15 of them.

 The Boutique did a booming business.

June was a very dear friend of Mike's. Mike had started hand quilting this quilt but did not get to finish it. June spent the day relaxing outside working on it.
