Little Balkan's Quilt Guild 2011 Quilt Show

It's hard to believe that it's Labor Day weekend already.  Where has the year gone?  And that means it's Little Balkan's Days in Pittsburg and today and tomorrow is our guild's quilt show.

So much work goes into staging this annual show.  Thursday I spent the day assisting with scribing as the judging took place.  Yesterday the quilts were hung.  It was amazing to see how organized things were this year.  165  entries were hung by mid afternoon.  Having the some PSU basketball players there to assist with the final step of raising the poles is so helpful! 

And today and tomorrow Tom and I will spend hours surrounded by beauty!  Each year the quilts are more amazing than the last.  We'll take turns with others working as hostesses, selling donation quilt tickets, etc.  It takes lots of people to put on a quilt show and we are fortunate to have wonderful members who jump right in to help.  I love this weekend!

So without further ado, here is some eye candy for you.

that is a very large show for such a small town - your guild must be very large and cover a large area of south east Kansas. Such lovely quilts.
