Quilts for Vets of Wayne County - Part 12

The quilt show was a huge success! All our efforts really paid off.
Just some random pictures... Alligator bites anyone???


lots and lots of people showed up - 
Beautiful Music performed by a bagpiper, we also had a gospel singer and a country band. Very fun and festive.
 Once all the 50 quilts were hung it certainly didn't seem like that many. The Korean Vets that came were able to pick the quilt they  wanted to receive in November.
we were able to get all the quilts hung on ropes between the trees
 it was such a beautiful sight to see so many patriotic quilts
 The quilt in the background was our raffle quilt. We made a whopping $650!!! Enough $ to make all the quilts we will need for the next 3 years.
There were about 20 vendors selling everything from yummy treats to beautiful wood signs.
It was a lot of work and I am so grateful it was a success and I am indeed grateful it is over!!!

That looks like a wonderful old-fashioned fair. I would have loved being there and seeing all your quilts together, enjoying the food and the music and the vendors. You did a good thing!
