Fabrics Unlimited Outdoor Quilt Show

We held our annual Outdoor Quilt Show on Saturday, July 21.  Our 1-day show was a big success again this year with 246 projects on display. (Not quite as big as the Sisters, OR show, but even they had to start somewhere!) In addition to the quilts, we served free hot dogs and water, had product demonstrations, and gave away many doorprizes.  Award winning free motion quilter Jill Schumacher was here demonstrating her free motion quilting technique on her sewing machine.  She will be back at Fabrics Unlimited to teach her beginning class on Wednesday, August 15.  Click here for more information and to register for her class. Sandy Weber demonstrated clothesline bowls on her sewing machine.  The fact that she had so many samples is evidence of how addicting this technique is! No special machine necessary...just use your sewing machine.

Also joining us were the very talented Fiber Art Chix all the way from Florida.  Cynthia, Paula, and Roxie brought several of their creative pieces for display and for sale. Click here to visit their website. Be sure to check out their gallery pages.  

 Jerry and I would like to thank everyone who volunteered to work at the Quilt Show and also those who displayed  projects.  You are the reason the Show was a success!

Following are pictures from the Quilt Show. Enjoy!

Happy Quilting!
