Minnesota Quilters Duluth Quilt Show

MQ had their yearly quilt show last weekend, this year in Duluth.
I went up on Thursday with Sarah Gannett and Sharon Englund.
We had laughs all the way up and all the way back.

I added a slide show in the right column of pictures from the show (The slideshow has been removed, see this link instead: 2009 MQ Show in Duluth  ). Apologies for the quality of the pictures first off...there were a lot of people at the show and it was difficult to get straight on shots of anything, and even if I had a bay to myself it wasn't for long. And I didn't take pictures of everything...not even enough time to see everything before knees and feet start to ache.

Switching to more positive notes, the show was absolutely fabulous! There was a huge amount of absolutely gorgeous quilts to see. It was very inspiring. There were so many vendors, but I was good and only bought two quilting necessities, no fabric, no impulse purchases. That has more to do with the fact that I'm cash poor than being a savvy spender. I hope the vendors made lots of money off other people!

Next years show will be in St. Cloud. "Quilting in the Quarry" June 17 - 19, 2010.


  1. Hi! I found your blog searcing for pictures of the Minnesota Quilt Show. I had 2 quilts in the show and was not able to attend, so I really enjoyed seeing your pictures of the show! Thanks so much for posting them! Happy Quilting! Janet Stone in Overland Park, Kansas

  2. Hi Janet!
    Your Alphabet Alchemy is pictured in the August 2009 newsletter available online at www.mnquilt.org.
    It's on page 12.

  3. Janet,
    I saw your two quilts last week at the Quilt Odessey Show in Hershey PA. Congratulations on your ribbons for both entries. They were spectacular. Do you present trunk shows or programs? I'm a member of the Starlight Quilters Guild in Mission and we are currently scheduling speakers/programs for 2010.
