Trunk shows

I've done three mini trunk shows in my studio over the past few weeks.  The last one was for my friend, no-blog Mary who came up from Toronto for a visit.  There were a lot of tops that were included in my trunk show as well as UFO's that no one has seen before.  Not even on my blog.  They will get shown in time, you will have to be patient.  :o)
We also had a sewing get-together for her in a friend's garage.  Most of the ladies were at retreat with her last fall and it was good for all of us to be together again.  Of course, there was a show & tell.

Lyn (on the right) from Timmins, Ontario came down at the same time as Mary and it was nice to see her again.  She brought this quilt that she is taking with her when they travel down to Arizona for the winter months.  She was telling us where she got her fabrics from.  Some here in Canada, some from Arizona.  A mish-mash of fabrics but they sure worked out well.
No-blog Mary showed us (in orange outfit) her quilt.  She had some Scottie dog fabric that she fussy cut and sewed onto the border.  How creative!
There were more quilts, but I can't show photos as they are secret for now.  I can only say that there were a lot of ooh's and aah's and drooling.

We had a snowfall overnight.  A great day to stay indoors and sew.  I do have lots to show, but can't for now.  You know .... Xmas gifts.

Have a great day!

Trunk shows are always fun - a journey of discovery - and history - for all involved! Your Tumbler Topper from your previous post is gorgeous - great border choice!

It is so much fun do pull out quilts and share them with others. We did that at my Mom's with her quilts. She had forgotten many of the quilts so it was a joy for her as much as for the guests!
