Threads Across Nebraska

Yesterday I traveled to Grand Island for the Annual Threads Across Nebraska quilt show and vendor mall, sponsored by the Nebraska State Quilt Guild. The quilts displayed were from quilters across Nebraska plus some from the International Quilt Study Center and Museum. The show was terrific and of course the vendors had lots of things to temp us. It was a great day spent looking, shopping and visiting with quilter friends.

I spent the morning selling raffle tickets for our guild's raffle quilt. There were 8 different raffle quilts there so lots of opportunities to get a chance on a quilt. After I finished my shift I was more than ready to look at the different quilt displays and to shop the vendor's booths.

Before you look at the photos of the quilts I have downloaded I do want you to know the photography is not real good. I sure don't know where my head was before I left home but after I was about 25 miles from home I remembered I did not pick up my camera and at the same time I also realized I didn't put any extra cash in my purse, thank goodness for credit cards and cell phone cameras. The photos I did take were with my cell phone and are amazingly pretty good considering. Because the photos are not so clear I can't read the signage to see who the makers are of these lovely quilts. I usually can read the signs when I take photos with my camera so am not used to taking photos of the signs.

Anyway - enjoy the photos. These were just a few of my favorites.

Get to spend the afternoon here at home as John has the help of two guys today and doesn't need my help. Really enjoy my time alone where I can sew, read, bead or just take a nap on a Sunday afternoon.
