Happenings at the bookstore

We had a quilt show and author signing event this weekend at Grand Valley Books. Traditional quilter Joan Walker showed off many of her creations, and I got a chance to show some CQed items I've made over the years. I've posted photos of my crazy garden quilt before, but here it is again:
Both Joan and I sat and demonstrated our stitching during the event. It was lots of fun to talk to people who'd never seen a crazy quilt, or who had never seen one close up, or who would like to give it a try someday.
My table with CQed cats, wooden boxes with CQed tops, a little rocking chair pin cushion, a bear with a vest...
My color wheel quilt, which has never been hung before this weekend, but just might get some wall time at home now that it has a sleeve.
Joan's quilts...
Joan and Margie.
Joan's sunflower quilt.

And more of Joan's beauties!

This looks so nicely staged. It must have been fun.
I enjoyed seeing your Color Wheel quilt. I have loved that since the first time I saw it and some day would like to try my hand at making something similar.
Thanks for showing these pictures and the CW again.
