Minnesota Quilters Quilt Show & Conference

We're back from the Minnesota Quilters show in Rochester.  They did it again!  The Minnesota Quilters put on an excellent show.  Thank you to all of the volunteers who made this special event happen.  We can't even imagine all the work and preparation that must go into this event to make it run so smoothly.

The quilt display was wonderful with almost 300 quilts on display in the judged and non-judged categories.  In addition to those quilts, there were challenge quilts, special exhibits and the small quilt auction.  We were so pleased that there were 35 quilts in the Sylvia's Bridal Sampler Special Exhibit as a result of our club.  There was lots of interest in those quilts and we heard many wonderful comments.  Thanks to all of you who took the time to display your quilts in the exhibit.

We heard great comments about all of the classes and lectures.  Can't wait to see some of the projects that were started. 

Being vendors, we hardly had a chance to see everything.  The vendor area was busy with shoppers.  We were able to quickly walk through all the quilt exhibits during a couple breaks.  I took a photo of one of my favorites.  This quilt was called Letter Carriers and was made by Janet Stone.  She won a 1st place ribbon in the Mixed Technique, Small Quilt category.  Her baskets were woven and I loved the edge treatment.

We're already looking forward to the 35th Annual Show.  Mark your calendars for June 13-15, 2013.  The show will be in Duluth, which is always a wonderful place to visit.  It's already on our calendar!
