Jacksonville Show

Many people stopped and were intrigued about how the boutis is actually made - so I answered many questions and I hope that we will have more interest in the future.
Look at this group of ladies ! They are (most of) the members of the Clearwater Boutis group Loose Stitches and were my traveling partners in Jacksonville. All of them are accomplished stitchers and we had a great time. We ate, shopped, shopped and shopped. Three of us now have the lovely basket from Ghana that Robby is carrying - and we all bought the same fabric to make a liner for it. I am working on everyone to make a boutis each for the show next year so we can have our own category - wouldn't that be great !

Here is my petasson that won the 3rd place in minatures at the Quiltfest. I was so grateful and excited !
