Sue Obsession Continues

2015 Opportunity Quilt and its talented creators
First and foremost, be sure to attend the upcoming Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival, coming up June 19-21 at the Overland Park Convention Center. It truly promises to be exciting - with exhibits, workshops, lecturers. Read all about it here.

Local guilds will be present to show their work and also to promote guild membership. Our Kaw Valley Quilters Guild will be there and they are letting our sewing group run the booth. Well, what were they thinking when they allowed THAT! We'll display our amazing 2015 Opportunity Quilt. Hmmm, now how to sell tickets? How to stand out among a bevy of amazing opportunity quilts?

Sue to the rescue! Our longstanding obsession with Sunbonnet Sue continues. We created this Sue photo booth - when you purchase an opportunity quilt ticket, you get to snap a photo of yourself as you-know-who - a lasting memento of this first ever regional quilt festival that you will always treasure!

The quilt historian also wrote about this today - check there for more information. She also cleverly showed how celebrities you might recognize would look here - you'll look great too!


  1. Too bad that I live so far away. I love going to quilt shows, there are so many talented quilters out there and I think that most are more than happy to visit and share tips and tricks to better quilting. I for one have a lot to learn:)

  2. My day was't going to well after a visit to the dentist. But this was wonderful, I can't stop laugh Call me sonbont Cait. Now we know what sunbonnet Sue was really hiding under that dress.

  3. Either you run the day, clever quotes or the day runs you
