Modern Sunbonnet Sue's Musings

Musings from the mind of a modern day Sue:
St. Johns Mint Festival Quilt Show

St. Johns, Michigan has a Mint Festival every year. A friend of mine told me about their quilt show and I was able to attend a couple of years ago. She's told me I should enter quilts in the show, so this year, I made up my mind to do so. I just finished filling out the quilt entry forms to mail in my August 1st. They will accept two quilts, plus one quilt for the challenge themed Really Red. As I indicated in previous posts, I am working on finishing the quilting on a quilt made from a photograh. The other quilt is called Twisted Sister from an Ami Simms class. I also am entering the Challenge with a block of the month I completed a few years ago called Sue through the Year. It was a block of the month redwork kit  of sunbonnet sue patterns that I purchased through Country Stitches in Lansing, MI - nice quilt shop if you're ever in the area. Check out the quilt show August 12-14, if you're in the area. Here's a picture of my sunbonnet sue redwork quilt. Enjoy!

Cora - I don't know Patti. There was a quilt shop over on Waverly for awhile. It closed and then reopened down the road, but closed again. I'm from up in Ithaca, so I'm not familiar with most people from St. Johns, but do have a few acquaintances. Thanks!

Very Nice! This must be the project you wanted to finish last Saturday. I recently read some info on the Mint Festival (@ McDonald's in Dewitt) & Jeff asked if you knew about the quilt show...said I should tell you about it. LOL!!!
