In addition to the over 200 quilts on display and fourteen vendors (see the latest show newsletter for a list), we will also have a special collection of last year's guild challenge, the Storybook Quilts.
Remember this quilt? Well, there were 35 more of them, all inspired by a book with a quilt in it, and they will all be together for the show. I'm hoping I can finally get a better picture of my entry, since the one in that blog post was taken before I got my new camera.
Storybook Quilts will be introduced and launched at this event. If you have ever shared a story with children, you will love this display of stories and their accompanying quilts, made by the members of the guild for a challenge. The goal of Storybook Quilts is to introduce children of all ages to the love of quilting and its influence in our history. This display of quilts is intended for use in children's educational programs and will be available for individual or group use in the future. Storybook Quilts, a dream of Janie Stokes, is a unique approach to multigenerational and tactile learning.
We will have "story time" to share the books and quilts on Saturday at 10, 12, and 2, and on Sunday at 12:30 and 2:30.
Tomorrow I hope to share more "process" photos of the amazing team as they transform a gym into a marvelous maze of quilts.
