In some respects the Pets of Quilt Show 2010 is now officially over. But, as the benefit of virtual quilt shows you can continue to view the quilts, as come back as often as you like (24/7). I am going thru all the comments to update my spreadsheet, to reflect entries for the various ways one can win a prize. Once I get this completed I will be using a random number generator to pick names for each prize. With luck, I hope to have this completed and be able to announce the winners tomorrow. In the meantime, I wanted to share these silly riddles with you, as I heard them from someone visiting the show. My apologies that I can not remember who shared this, and I hope you’ll forgive me, but while I’ve had fun the past two weeks it has been a bit hectic. I did think these riddles were cute, and thought you may know a small child that you want to share this with:
“What did the dog say when it sat on the sandpaper?”
“What did the cat say when it sat on the sandpaper?”
I’ve had some good constructive feedback on better ways to have structured this quilt show, and I appreciate this feedback. It will definitely help should it be held again in the future, as well as help me for related shows. If you do have any recommendations you have not yet shared, feel free to leave a comment and/or email me. I’d love to hear your recommendations. As I host the Christmas Quilt Show, late fall/early winter, and the Golden Quilter Awards in the spring, I wanted to hold a show in the summer and certainly have enjoyed the Pets on Quilts Show. But I’d also be interested in hearing feedback to determine if you’d like to see the “Pets on Quilts Show” being held in 2011, or have a recommendation for a different theme. Lastly, I’m looking for ways to get more EQ6/EQ7 and fibre-arts quilters participating in these shows. Again, if you have any recommendations or feedback please feel free to leave a comment or email me.
I also want to thank the sponsors for this show for their generosity, those that submitted their pets on quilts to share with all of us, those that helped with PR, and those that took time to view the entries and leave comments to those that shared. Quilt shows wouldn’t be fun without the quilts to see, and I do realize it takes time to enter any show, thus I am appreciative and want to encourage every quilter to enter shows (virtual, local, international). This is the a great way for quilters to share, to learn, to support, to inspire, to have fun, and much, much more.
