Mid-week Inspiration, Quilt Tulsa and Quilting Fun
This Friday and Saturday I will be attending Quilt Tulsa. The show runs both days from 10-5. Over 2,000 folks attended last year. There will be a Quilter’s Basket Walk, boutique, small quilt auction, education booth, and over 60 vendors. What fun! I will be selling copies of my books as well as items I’ve picked up in various Amish communities.
Quilt shows certainly do inspire me. When I first started attending, I didn’t quilt at all. I didn’t know how and didn’t even own a sewing machine. I’ve been going to quilt shows for 2 years now, and I’m continually amazed at the artistry and skill that goes into quilting.
Now I do have a sewing machine (thank you, Walmart), and I’ve completed several quilts. They’re not perfect. In fact, they have a LOT of errors, but I learn something new with each quilt.
If you’re in the Tulsa area, or know someone who is, I would love to meet you! Whether you attend this quilt show or another one, I hope that you are able to see some of the beautiful quilting done by ladies all over our country. For me, it has been a real blessing.
