Best Long Arm Quilting
I have to get more energetic in getting my Blog done. I have been very busy quilting and I wanted to tell you all about our local Quilt Show. I belong to the Happy Scrapper Quilt Guild in Union City Pa. On September 20Th and 21St we had our bi-annul show. We had 125 entries, it is our Major money raiser and we did quite well by raffling a Gift Basket, Small Baby Quilt and quilt rack.
Every Year about this time we give donations to the local charities such as Horizon House,and our local food pantry. Many of our Guild member donate there time to making quilt tops that I quilt for us to give to Horizon House which is a agency for battered women plus local fire victims. This year we made and quilted 9 quilts for these charities.
I was honored to have a quilt I quilted chosen for the best long arm quilting. This is my first full year for quilting and I was very excited as there were many more entries that other longarmers quilted. There is a story to this quilt and I will tell you all about it next time.
