The Trinity Valley Quilt show is this coming weekend and I know you guys remember me being rather bold and brave to enter my quilt in the show. Strictly for fun, and I am really looking forward to seeing all the amazing talented quilters and their quilts this weekend.
A requirement for dropping off your quilt for the show is that it has to be in a cloth bag and labeled with the quilt name and owners name. I really did not know what to make for a cloth bag. I searched on the Internet for some samples, but did not come up with much...so I did what most people would have done....made up my own design.
What do you think? I had the white fabric, it was from an estate sale and it is a heavy weight cotton. Out of my scrap bin, found some of the fabric that was used in the quilt itself and added it.....just because I thought it made a nice touch.
I was going to add a vintage button to close the flap, because you know how I like vintage things..but it just was not working. I did however, find my button maker kit and used the same fabric for the button....Oh....I love it.....this time, vintage just did not do.
Here is the quilt, nicely folded, and just peeking out from inside the bag.
And here is my label. I stitched this in the side seam of the bag, no chance of the label getting lost that way. So here is the signed part....label intact.
And here is the sealed part......now, all I have to do is deliver on Thursday morning and I am done. The awards are Friday morning at 9:00 am. The show starts on Friday morning at 10:00 am. I am going to go to the awards, not with the assumption I am going to win anything, but......... that I may never do this again, and want the whole experience. The whole She-bang.
I can not wait until Saturday, that is when we will go and really look at all the quilts on display. It should be fun. Don't worry, I will finish posting about this quilt with a recap of the quilt show.....lots of pictures....because it is so fun looking at other peoples works of art.......
