2011 Quilt Show day 3 - the end!

What a great quilt show! 
Thanks to the quilters who shared their work, the attendees who appreciated the quilts, the vendors who kept us hopping with ideas, and the VOLUNTEERS who made the show run like a fine clock.

It takes SO MANY people to put on a great show like this and we appreciate them all.  Lots of non-quilters volunteer, just because they have a quilter in their lives or because they just like the fun of a quilt show! 

Sedro-Woolley's Blast from the Past vintage car show was Sunday, June 5th, and it attracted folks from all over the region.  More than 160 cars were on display - these photos were taken at about 8:00 in the morning when entries were still coming in.  Later, the streets were jam-packed!!

Finally, at 4:00 on Sunday afternoon, we broke down the show and returned all the quilts.  Monday morning, when it was time to take the quilt stands back to Fidalgo Island Quilters (they were rentals!), 10 volunteers showed up at 8:30 in the morning to do the loading and transport, and to do some final cleaning on the buildings!  What would we do without them?

Check back on this blog for some photos of fabulous quilts!  And think about what quilts you will enter next year.  Come on in!  Woolley Fiber Quilters 2012 quilt show will be June 1-2-3 in Downtown Sedro-Woolley!

PS  Don't freak out about "where" the quilt show will be.  It will be downtown.  All you need to do is come to Metcalf Street and look for the signs that say "Quilt Show".  We'll find a building (or two) and be ready to greet YOU!
