Fabulous Quilt Show, Classes, Reunion and a Sneak Peek!

WOW!! Sew Kind of Wonderful has sure been busy!! It all started a couple of weeks ago in beautiful Midway, UT at the Small Town Quilt Show. We loved our time there and especially enjoyed meeting new quilters and reacquainting with familiar ones! 

Very few people took issue with walking on our quilt.  For the most part, everyone was willing (although it took a little coaxing) to step outside their "quilting box" and lay aside those "quilting rules" and take a little stroll on our quilt.  We figure that is what Sew Kind of Wonderful is about...stepping outside our boxes and breaking a few of those quilting rules. ;) 

 Our kits sold like hotcakes! We're very happy with the response we received regarding the kits and will most likely have more available in the future. 
We had a wonderful time teaching our two classes! Our classes were full of delightful ladies who caught on very quickly!! Smart quilters! 
Jenny's kids had soooo much fun playing with their cousins in Saratoga Springs, UT but were excited to see mom after a few days! 
This past week our family reunited for our bi-annual Morris/Passey reunion.  We had a blast! Swimming, fishing, eating, four wheeling, hiking, eating, games, shotgun shooting, talent night and did we mention EATING!! ;)
And...the highlight for us was making these adorable sock monkeys! :)
Jenny's been working on a very fun new pattern! A little twist on a popular traditional pattern. Here's a little sneak peek. Enjoy! :D
We hope everyone is having a fun filled Summer and getting in tons of quilting!

I would need a lot of convincing to walk on your quilts too. :), but Quilt pattern alert in pic # 4, that Carpet is yummy, i think you will make a pattern like that, well you probably have already and are you working on a pickle-Dish with a twist. :)
Looks very yummy what ever it is.
LOVE your work. Cindy. :)

I too would have a problem stepping on your quilt!
I see Cindy spotted the carpet in photo #4 like me! perfect back drop for your quilt style!

Congratulations on your success at the Quilt Show!! You so deserve it!! Looking at pic#4 my first thought was: she even brought her own carpet! A very special coincidence!!
As for walking on your or on a quilt: I wouldn't have done that. Apart from some practical reasons, to me the idea of shoes, after being in contact with dirt, mud or even worse and then stepping on a quilt, is disgusting.

It's great to see that quilters are finding your QCR, and having fun learning how to use it. Personally, I'm not a "kit person" and never will be. Where'e the fun in letting someone else choose the fabrics for my quilt?! :-) So glad to see you continue to be creative with designs. You have so much talent, and I'm glad you're sharing it with us.
