Channeling Rooney and Garland . . .

". . . Let's put on a show!!"

Three weekends ago, I ran into Scott and Sam, a couple who run an antique shop/art gallery in Ste. Genevieve, MO . . . they asked if I'd be interested in mounting a quilt show in their gallery for an upcoming Art Walk (which happens the fourth Friday of every month).

Two weekends ago, Ed and I spent the weekend in Perryville, MO, not far from Ste. Genevieve, and I had the opportunity to scope out the place.

This weekend, I decided to mount a quilt show the end of August. I need to quilt the following four quilts in five weeks:

The first three quilt tops are 36" square; the last quilt top is 72" square.
What has me psyched is that all four quilt tops were made using the same set of templates, though no two patterns are alike (and there are infinite possible patterns).
More to follow . . .


  1. I think Judy and Mickey would be pleased!

  2. Thank you, Nate . . . the gallery owners have me pencilled in and are ready to start promoting . . . I'll get them some promotional material to work with. It'll be a busy month on my end, as well: I wanna get the new pieces quilted; I need to get my magazine articles framed for display (so people can read about me when I'm not there). They say, "no rest for the wicked," but I didn't think I'd been THAT bad, LOL!!

  3. Those are great looking quilts. Good luck with the show. If I could I'd be there for sure!

  4. Thank you, Greg . . . keep your eyes on the Calendar page on my website . . . I might just be coming to a town near you!!
