possible DQS9

I am working for the next three weeks on projects that I will be selling at the annual Swiss Days Festival in Midway, Utah. The art event had an attendance of over 100,000 people last year over two days. It will be labor day week end. My daughter and I are sharing a booth. We were so excited to be juried into the show. We have been attending for years and have wished that we could be a part of it. My daughter is a professional photographer and will be selling her "Little Lightbox Designs". She does incredible "word" art and her photographs are amazing!

This bird is one of the pieces that I will be selling at the show. I am also considering do this design in a mini quilt for my DQS9 partner. I have finished another quilt with a bird theme as well that I originally made for the swap but now I am waffling about what my partner might like the best. If I decide to use this one for the show it will be framed in a white frame and sold as an art piece.

I will post more images of the types of things I will be selling in the coming days leading up to the show. If you are in Utah for the Labor Day week end, don't miss this show! Everything is original and must be the work of the artists with 180 booths and lots of entertainment and great Swiss food and bakery goodies!

Hope to see you there!


  1. Always enjoy your blog and come away inspired. Your bird is adorable. :)

  2. I haven't been by in a while but boy I sure feel inspired when I visit. Your blog is wonderful and your work is incredible.

    So happy you get to be in the show. How exciting. I wish you the best and can only say that I wish I could attend! I'd scoop up this beautiful bird in a second! I'd probably have to pull hair and kick shins to get to it but I'd sure try! ("

    Good luck!
