August 25th Miltonvale - Tootlefest
Hope you got a chance to get out to Miltonvale today for their big ta-doo! If not.....
Then enjoy the following pictures of what they had to offer this year.
Love the table where you go in and get a ticket toward winning one of the items on display, pay a dollar more and get another opportunity. Told the ladies the Flower Burst Pedals is mine. Okay, not this one - the big one that is hand quilted. Bought a ticket on that also. Please, please! If not, then I asked for the pattern. hahahahaha
Guest quilter this year was our own Jenell H. The hexie quilt was her first. Her grandmother had started a few and through the years, Jenell kept adding to it. See the rail fence there on your right, that was Jenell's first quilt she did with our guild. Believe it was a rail fence challenge. Brian Grove inspired her sun and wheat in the middle.
Jenell has learned so many different techniques. Not just in quilts. Afaghans, rugs, paintings, etc.
Before we left, Jenell came in and we got a shot of her with some of her quilts.
Thank you Cindy K. Notice the stain glass is now right side up - check other pictures as you go along. It was hung the wrong direction, but Cindy caught it.
So many wonderful treasurers for Jenell's family.
Tootlefest quilt show always has a viewers choice vote - everyone that went by the above was oohing and aahhing this one. It was a BOM with the Quilting Bee.
There were quite a few ribbon winners among the displays also.
Donna S. took this candle wicking pillow that she found in her mother's things I believe, worked it out and entered it in Cloud and in Clay Counties. Great job Donna.
Believe the sign said that this woman has 26 grandchildren and they made this quilt for her, for her birthday. Love the idea.
So many wonderful quilts.
Got to see Sharon's again. I tell you - this quilt just took my heart the other night when Sharon gave its story. Valances and blankets - what a memory keeper.
It was difficult picking out a viewers choice - too many wanted to picks.
That;s Jenell's show as seen from the main part of the church.
Remember, also coming up soon
