Thanks to everyone who attended our 3rd annual Holiday Open House at Primitive Gatherings Quilt Shop…and thanks to my girls who worked on this Holiday Weekend, Nick and I appreciate all of your help and efforts. Jess, Nancy, Char, Lori, Joan, Joanne, Jean, Amy and Norma thanks for being part of a great event! Special thanks to the “warehouse girls” for getting all these kits done…850 pincushions and this probably will not be enough!!!
Whether you were able to walk in the door or participate on-line this event was awesome…there were tons of door pizes…treats and gifts, but the best thing was Joanne Blank’s Bed turning of her quilts. The room was filled to the brim for each of her showings/turnings. Since our online customers can participate in everything but this and you participated very well…(Jess thinks she broke our printer, printing all of those orders)…i decided to shoot all of Joanne’s quilts and share them here with you.
There is only one request…remember I will not know all of the names of her quilts, the patterns and a lot of these quilts are her own designs or have been past BOMs from the shop and are no longer available. Some of these quilts are challenge quilts with her sister Frannie and group challenges with her mini quilting group and special quilting friend Colleen, so again there would be no patterns available for these quilts. I have labeled them to the best of my knowledge at this point in time.
If you have not had the pleasure of meeting Joanne..she first and foremost is a wonderful person, a very talented, award winning and prolific quilter and she works for me!!!! Double click on the photos to make them larger if you wish to do so…Now this is just a sample of the quilts she has made in her less than 16 or 18 years of quilting.
Enjoy the show! LB
