SAQA-TX @Houston

Sharron Evans and I unpacked all the wonderful mini quilts last week and prepped them to hang on the wall behind our booth at Festival.  There are about 50 pieces. They look super - a good mix to show what we are all doing.  Thank you all for your contributions.  I think you'll be proud of our exhibit.

Look forward to seeing you there and thanks again for all the volunteers at the booth.
