Wow!!!  Thank you so much for all of the incredible sweet comments on my  Read With Me Quilt and Tutorial.  You all sure know how to make a gal feel fantastic!! In fact, I felt so fantastic about this quilt thanks to all of your wonderful compliments, that this weekend . . . 

I added a cute little label to the back . . . 

And added a quilt sleeve . . . 

And entered it into the Salt Lake Home Machine Quilting Show!!!!!   I am so excited.  Honestly, I wasn't planning on this at all.  But we were going to Salt Lake this weekend and my mom has agreed to drop it off and pick it up and the show is May 9-11 so she is bringing it right back to me before I leave for Market as she is watching the kids, so basically no shipping involved.  And then all of your wonderful comments kept coming in and bolstering my confidence and basically, I just ran out of excuses why not to.  

So we will see how it goes.  I don't have any big expectations, but I figured, I might as well give it a go.  Can't hurt to try, right??

Pin It!


  1. Your label is just so cute Good luck in the show. I love the quilt.

  2. That's fantastic - I plan on going so it will be wonderful to see it in person :-)

  3. It is a great quilt. I'm glad you entered it. Now I'll be able to see it in person.

  4. I'm not a quilter (at all!!), but this quilt makes me want to give it a try! I love it and I'm so glad you're entering it in the show! Good luck! (and are you the Melissa that worked at the SUU bookstore somewhere between '98 and '02?? Because I'm the Gail that did :) )

  5. Melissa!! I love this quilt!! SOOOO much!! Way to go!

  6. Good for you Melissa. This has got to be one of the best qults Ive seen in a while.

  7. I can't wait to see it there. I want to get one of my quilt done for the show, but I just don't know if I can make it. My Aunt told me about 2 other shows one in July and the other in Oct. I think I might just have to wait for those. I will let you know what I hear from people as I walk around.

  8. Good luck! Love the wee label :o)

  9. I just saw this quilt... WAY TOO CUTE. ♥


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
