Today seems to be about the “Rs”. I’m in California for ROAD 2 CA. My first time vending at this show. Tonight was Preview and the Show opens tomorrow. They have many health protocols in place and hoping we see a great turnout. My “little” booth is below. When I fly to vend at a show, I have to get creative with setup and the number of quilts I take along. I’m pleased it all worked well.
The second “R” is for the “Quilt Block Remix Challenge”. If you recall last year I participated with several Imagination Renovation of quilt blocks. This is the same idea with a different name. Some of the same quilt pattern designers and some new. I look forward to exploring the Ohio Star Block. We will have 4 weeks of posting on Instagram. You can find me @debbiewendtquilting . I’ll be adding bits of the block challenge here as well. The first week is the Fabric Pull, second week – Sneak Peek #1, third week – Sneak Peek #2 and fourth week – Reveal! All posts on Instagram will be on Mondays. My fabric pull and #1 Sneak Peek are below. I’m not sure what direction this block will end up taking, but I am having fun dreaming up some possibilities.
I hope you will follow along and search out our little challenge. I am always amazed how many remix ideas are posted. I love working with Edyta Sitar’s Something Blue fabric line!
Oh, and AQS has announced the teachers for the Quilt Show in Paducah….you will find my name! I’m teaching 4 classes and the enrollment begins at the end of the month. The Daytona Beach show is fast approaching. There is still time to enroll in my Bindings A World of Options lecture!
What will 2022 have in store for you? A new project (or several)? A Quilt Show? A class? I hope you find many happy moments!
Tips will be show related…
Since we were freezing in the convention center tonight – #1 – Take LAYERS (of clothes!) You never know what a convention center temperature will be. AND #2 – Hydrate! There is nothing worse than getting a headache from not drinking enough water.
