Mansfield Ohio Guild Exhibits Food & Patriotic Quilts

Here's the photo from Mansfield Quilt Guild from their show exhibiting both my patriotic and food for body and soul quilts. They loved the quilts.
This same weekend, the Muncy Historical Museum celebrated the 150th anniversary of the Civil War by exhibiting my circa 1860s quilts included in the Thanking Our Troops--God Bless America Touring Quilts.
Both brought rave reviews as did the QSC Expos Reno, Nv Food for Body and Soul Quilt Exhibit. They sold all 25 1905 Cookbook. Fenley Arts Council exhibited the patriotic quilts the same week-end in Fenley, NV.
See on all 300 patriotic and 100 food quilts available for only $100 week-end rental for your next quilt show, civic or church event. All profits go to feed needy children and for quilts for wounded soldiers and families of the fallen.

Quilted Travel Diary Making Workshop for Altus Teens

July 19 I have the privilege of traveling 3 hours each way to show 10 teenagers at the Altus Library how to make their 22x22" quilted vacation diary of their fave trip. It should be fun. Took all week getting the kits precut and partially sewn with the borders and make the samples. I'll send photos later. Wish me luck.

July 4th Kingfisher Celebration a Blast

Small town America knows how to party! We set up 100 Thanking Our Troops--God Bless America Touring Quilts in the air conditioned (thank goodness) Girl Scout House at the Kingfisher Park. Ninety-three year old Opal Baum and her daughter Ina Smith and Dee Paddack helped me sign books with all profits going for quilts for wounded soldiers and families of the fallen.
Dee sold cooling neckties and survival bracelets for The Hugs Project and had 10 Home of the Brave Quilts that people signed to give to families of the OK fallen soldiers. They loved the exhibit!
Kids had face painting, egg toss games, free swimming in their beautiful new indoor aquatics center and rides on the train and fire engines. They had a big parade, fireworks of course, food booths, art show and a rubber duck race.
