One down - One to Go

We just finished an AMAZING weekend at 
Best of the Valley Quilt Show in Lindsay.

This is a picture of the tireless volunteers from our San Joaquin Valley 
who make this terrific show possible.
They work very hard all year to pull it all together for the rest of us.
There were over 200 quilts, made by creative souls from age 8 to over 80.

I'll add more photos as I can.
Or you can keep up with the news at

CeCe Westerfield was the featured artist. 
She showed an amazing variety of beautiful pieces.

 Here are some beautiful quilts by some of my quilty friends. 
 I did my best, but forgive my lousy photography skills.

BUT - no rest for the wicked...
and now we're ready to start preparing for the 
Heart of the Valley Shop Hop on May 1-3.
