Well done, MVQ!!!!

A great show is over. Time to sit back on our laurels. Applaud the winners and each and every maker who entered a quilt. It was nice to see even a new member like Heather Shields enter a quilt to be judged!

Thanks to all the worker bees who tirelessly gave every efffort for this event! It can’t be done without you.

Thanks to the demonstrations given and organized by Gail; Lyn Grenier, Maddie Burke, Jeannie Robertson, Betty Hastings, Janice Jones,and Pat Lucey.

The ribbons were beautiful- made by a group sewing together[among them,  Jan Taylor, Carol Sullivan, Cathy Harnish and others, I am sure!] and Addy for the lovely vendor ribbons.

Challenge was fun!

Penny raffle, as usual, drew a crowd- Thanks, Kathy, Gail etc.

White Elephant ladies- Angie and Barbara outdid themselves!

Carrie our judge and show hanging organizer: we are very grateful!

Vendors- thanks to Marianne and Bev! Nice gathering.

Thanks to Bev for the Silent Auction!

And to have a very deserving winner of our raffle quilt- Jeannie Elliot, made it all the better! You are wrapped in love from every member of this guild!

And of course, without Jane and Layne, none of this would have been possible. Brava! Ladies of MVQ
