Below are my quilts being hang in the theater section. Once again, I got prime real estate for the show. Woo hoo! I got a lot of compliments for these two quilts. One lady asked me who I was studying under. I looked at her blankly and said, "um... no one."

Even though these two quilts did not sell, what an ego booster this quilt show was.

On another note, remember last year when I sold only 5 wine bags out of 73 wine bags? This year I was a little bit more successful.

I sold 9 wine bags (out of 13).
I sold all my place mats (16 total).
I sold 3 trivets (out of 6).
I sold 2 coasters (out of 3).

Not bad after all.

Next year, I'll be bringing a lot of place mats because they only had one left after the first day.

I really did not have high expectations on selling anything, so I made things that we could use around the house. Boy, was I wrong. Better start now for next year's boutique.
