Black Canyon Quilt Show

I have just returned from my first visit to the Black Canyon Quilt Show.  I am headed back this afternoon to see our guest lecturer – Judy Martin.  There are lots of wonderful quilts to see, but this post is about a funny.

Do you remember the post about this project – the monster growth chart?I made this growth chart to be sold at the boutique with all proceeds benefiting a local charity.   Well it has sold – as a table runner!   Yes, you read correctly – the person who bought this plans to use it as a table runner.

It just tickles my funny bone, but I am glad that the monsters have a good home.

Off to lunch then Judy Martin.

Growth Chart

This is the third growth chart that I have made in the last five months.  Two were birthday gifts for two of my granddaughters and this one is a donation.

Every year the Black Canyon Quilt Show has a fund raiser for a local non-profit organization.  This year the money raised will go to the Haven House which helps homeless families get their lives together again. I hope this growth chart sells well to help support such a worthy cause.

Here is a close-up photograph showing the adorable puff monsters and the colorful tape measure (supplied by an eagle-eyed daughter at the cutting table at Jo-Ann’s) which adds the finishing touch.

 My quilting crystal ball tells me that there are more growth charts in my future.  For now it is back to the 2012 Challenge Quilt.
