Every year it seems that Utah Quilt Guild's Quilt Fest creeps up and surprises me! I think that I have plenty of time to get ready and then the next thing I know it is time to pack.

Samples for Walking Foot Wonders
I did get a pile of quilts ready for my machine quilting class. Florence and I like to show a lot of examples in class. I have started to bring smaller quilts so that I can pack more in the suitcase.

Emerald Pools samples
A couple of months ago I had 2 friends test my Emerald Pools class. I was really going to get that quilt quilted, I ran out of time. But since it is a top, it packs easier in the already full  class suitcase.

In class working sample
And my demo pieces are all cut and ready to go. Well, except for the black. I also got the copies made of my class handout, so all set on that front.

Last year I gave all my buddies a chunk of sock monkey fabric. I challenged them to do something with it, due at this year's fest. Guess what I am working on this weekend?  Last minute Lewis strikes again. I hate riding the edge of a deadline, yet I do it time and time again. I will have a lot of stops on my way North Tuesday. It should be a fun event.  

This is my off the wall post for this week, next week I will check in from Quilt Fest!


  1. You must work well under pressure :-)

  2. It takes so much time to prepare for demos and workshops. People have no idea! First learning the skills you teach, then writing info on handouts, then stepping out the examples, then gathering quilts, oh it's a lot of work I know! Good for you to get it done, hope all goes smoothly. LeeAnna at not afraid of color
