Stromsburg, Nebraska!

Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of visiting a very Swedish place in Nebraska called Stromsburg. I was there by invitation of The Quilters, a group of about 22 people from 8 different communities. A nice crowd attended the Quiltmaker lecture:

We had a lovely afternoon, even if I didn’t know what time zone I was in.

The Quilters were hosting a quilt show in the Evangelical Free Church, and it was unlike any show I’d ever seen. They used the church pews for display!

It worked really well and you could see the quilts quite nicely.

They used the front of the church for additional display space.

Many thanks to The Quilters for their gracious hospitality.

    I was part of ‘The Quilters’ group in Stromsburg, NE. Diane put on a very impressive show. Loved the quilts she showed. I had to go home and see how many were in the Quiltmaker magazines I already had. I now have many more ‘to do’ quilts on my list. I will subscribe to ‘Quiltmaker’ so I can get patterns for the upcoming quilts. Pat
