Heritage Quilters Guild of South Suburbia Quilt Show

This past weekend I learned what a unique experience it is to vend at my own guild's quilt show. I knew many of the guild members as they came and went throughout the day working their volunteer shifts. I had also watched many of the quilts in the show as they were being pieced, so it was fun to see the finished products hanging in the show.

I have another show this weekend that I'm preparing for (in Sycamore/DeKalb) so I'm going to get right to the photos.

Some of my peeps from our guild: Winnie, Mary, Geri,Moe, Karen, Sandy K, and Sandy T.

Anyone who is part of a quilt guild knows how much work and time goes in to planning a successful quilt show. Thanks to all Heritage members who volunteered their time and talents to make this show possible...it was a great one!
