trunk show

Friends.
Beware.

Quilts ADD up.

Instead of sewing yesterday...
I gave an informal trunk show to relatives.

I was SHOCKED at how many quilts I had to share.
I was SHOCKED at how much I could TALK about each one!

I'm EMBARRAssed that I have this many quilts at MY house!!!!
I thought I had given MOST away!!

This stack does not include the quilts on
WALLS...
BEDS......and SOFAS!!!!

  1. Sounds like you had a good time yesterday, then! I'm glad to hear it. Also, I'm not surprised you had so much to say about each one-- your thought processes and the new things you're trying or learning from each one :)

  2. That's too funny. My family has no idea how many small quilts are under the bed in the guest room. I don't have any bed size quilts anywhere as I have given them all away. I plan to correct that in the near future! I need some quilts for me.

  3. I can sure relate to this! I don't think I ever have mine all in one place at one time :0). Looks like a nice collection and I wish I could have been there for the trunk show. Are you gonna give us one online?

    Happy Sewing

  6. Don't worry, you're not alone. what would be worse if your family asked about quilting and you had nothing to show them. how can you can anyone excited about quilts without quilts?

  8. I know what you mean Beth. Would a trunk show something you may consider for Quilters by the Sea?

  10. I also have to have a trunk show when my family visits. My mom always asks what I'm working on, and one quilt leads to another.

  12. I would definitely consider it much more entertaining than someone's travel photos!! I'm jealous of the fact that those quilts are finished. I'm embarrassed by the number of tops I have waiting to be quilted. You've given me momentum to "bore" - I mean - entertain my family with some completed projects.
