OKCMQG's State Fair Booth!




We had a great time at the State Fair today.  Our booth looked beautiful and Angela and Erin had a lot of fun catching up and hanging out as we watched the booth.  We walked around and saw the quilts that had been entered in the competition.  We think we should enter a modern quilt next year to be judged.  Could be fun right?  We saw the Bernina and Janome booths.  I had a pretzel and Angela had a cherry strudel.  I think she made the better choice!  We had a lot of fun and will do it again next year if we get asked back.  Next year we plan to bring our sewing machines so we can sew and work on projects while we watch our booth.  We had a small number of people pass by and take flyers.  Our favorites were a 12-year-old girl that has been making quilts from the age of eight and a wonderful older lady that hand pieced and stitched a queen quilt made up of tiny hexagons.  We had a lot of people ask if we would take quilt orders but we said no because we were really there just to promote the group and we are all too busy!  All in all Angela and I are glad we set up a booth at the State Fair this year.  We are very thankful to Jenny for inviting us and to Rozz for carting us in on her golf cart.  Thanks ladies!  Hope to see you all next year at the fair!
