The winner of Bloom Creek Quilts is Michele of Manitouwadge, Ontario, Canada! Congratulations! Michele says, “Yippeee Skippeee!! This is fantastic news!! Now I know what I’ll be doing over the holidays!”

During the fall, at the quilt show in Reedley, somebody sent a friend to come see me in my booth and to look at all my appliqué quilts, but I had stepped away for a moment. Later they came back and this friend pronounced that she couldn’t find me because my booth had no sign. (This despite the appliqué quilts hung everywhere LOL.)

It got me thinking. Well, the larger shows often provide signage, but the smaller ones usually don’t. Hmm, I said to myself. Other vendors have really cute quilted signs, maybe I should have one too. So I sat down and sketched out an idea for something simple but graphic. I’ve been working on it the last couple weeks and just finished it up.


That oughta fill the bill, don’t you think? And, maybe it will pre-answer the question that I often get, which is, “Did you do all these???”

Until next time,
By Kay Mackenzie

    What a great idea! When I wandered into your booth in Roseville last month, I only knew it was you because I am familiar with your work. That’s a great way to get your name out there :)

    Great idea, Kay. And it would make a wonderful table runner too! I can see it with hearts instead of the flowers and a cute saying from those candy hearts like be mine, valentine. Or how about easter eggs instead of the flowers – lots of possibilities.

    I love your sign. It looks so like the work you do. It’s beautiful, cheery, and fresh looking.

    Thanks everybody! I was hoping it would look like “me” so I’m glad to hear you think so!

    Love your sign, Kay. I have always wanted one of my own – even if it’s just for my studio space! It’s on my list of to-makes:)
