Blast of Freedom - Day 2 was full of fun!

Day 2 is over but what a day!  Lots of quilt appreciators came to see our show, and enjoyed the Blast from the Past street fair!  Did you know there are pony rides?  Gotta love a street fair with pony rides.

Both performances of our bed turning were SRO!  Londa and her committee put on a great show - we not only have vintage bed quilts to show you but DOLL QUILTS, too!  This town is full of great vintage pieces and we are so grateful that their owners share the quilts with us.  Two more showings tomorrow - 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.  Come a little early to get a seat!

Our beautiful raffle quilt, "Grandmother's Charm" (shown here as the bed header) was WON at the 4 p.m. drawing!  Photos to follow. 

Our visitors and vendors from out of town have been commenting on what fun we have together here in Sedro-Woolley!  It's true.  The street fair was bustling with folks and the contests at Hammer Heritage Square had lots of fans and competitors.  David Bricka (Country Meadow Village activities director) is once again the overall champion in the adult jump rope division.  He says that his secret to success is bacon!  Well, he had it for breakfast today.  And the competitor who had a protein smoothie for breakfast did not win.  Just think about it.

Lots of plants from Thompson's Nursery were purchased today - saw folks walking by with arms full.  And our own Heather Rogers from Machine Quilting Experience bought a massive fuchsia hanging basket. 

The Blast of Freedom quilt show member boutique is still full of great quilted items for you to consider.  Looking for a small quilt for a favorite little one?  

We have also unveiled the new WFQ raffle quilt - which will be WON in June 2015!  At our next quilt show!  We plan ahead.  Come and see it and get your tickets early!

Tomorrow - Sunday - is the Blast from the Past vintage car show.  If you love vintage cars, this will be the place for you!  Weather will be perfect.  And if you love quilts, we're right here to welcome you to Blast of Freedom!
