A Pleasant Surprise

"Let Your Sparkle Out!"
2012 Biennial Quilt Show
Lincoln Quilter's Guild
May 18 - 20, 2012
Lincoln, NE
Last week, Marilyn and I stopped at the 2012 Biennial Quilt Show in Lincoln, NE. On display were 350 quilts made by Lincoln Quilter's Guild members.

 A separate area featured an exhibit of 102 Quilts of Valor.

Sara K (QOV coordinator), Nancy S., and Julia S. (co-QOV coordinator)
At the Quilt of Valor information table, Marilyn and I added a note of thanks and our names on some prepared, signature quilt blocks. It was at this table, I unexpectedly met two women with whom I'd never met before that day but with whom I shared a prior connection.

More about our chance meeting is posted on the QOV blog.

Julia S. (shown at right in the photo above) was the volunteer machine-quilter for Controlled Spin (QOV #7), and Sara K. is a Wyoming Breezes follower who used to live in Sheridan, WY. It was great fun to meet these two dynamic ladies and to marvel at our chance meeting.
Julia S. bids us farewell and safe travel.

  1. Looks like it was a great show! I love those chance encounters at quilt shows... they give me opportunity to catch up with past friends now that we have moved to another state.

    The QOV display must have been awesome, to see that many in one place.
