I had the pleasure of being the Featured Quilter at the Mother Lode Quilters’ Guild Show in Sutter Creek. I met so many people, engaged in interesting conversations and was generally treated like a Queen!
Anelie Belden is the President and was a supportive and attentive host. I stayed at the Foxie Inn, a lovely bed and breakfast just steps away from the show. I took breakfast in the garden each morning and enjoyed an indulgent croissant breakfast.
I was greeted with a beautiful basket from the guild:
Tucked in there was the local paper with a feature article about me!
This gave me a giggle:
I could NOT find the light switch! I knew it had to be there somewhere….
Sutter Creek is a pleasant town to spend a day or two in, with excellent food, boutique shopping and scenes like this:

I so enjoyed demo-ing for the crowd!
And who knew, there were 3 C&T authors!
Okay, now I know you want to see the quilts! I am posting the quilt’s photo, maker and quilter. I’m crunched for time and won’t be adding comments unless needed for clarity. Here we go!
It was the guild’s first show in three years! There was a bumper crop of beautiful quilts. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the show!
