Another big highlight from this year's Santa Clara Valley Quilt Association's "The Heart and Art of Quilts" was seeing all 18 of the fabulous quilts/projects that were started and/or inspired by my Quilting 101 Demonstrations: Intriguing Interleaves and Slice of Improv. Quite a few of the quilts had been previously shown during our meeting show and tells and/or featured on my blog. However, there were several finishes which were a total surprise to me!!
The Quilting 101 Display was conveniently positioned very close to my own booth, so close I could see it all throughout the weekend! Charlotte, LaNelle and Ileane did a fantastic job of curating and laying out an amazing display of smaller projects that were started in Quilting 101 Demo Days.

And then there were a few larger quilts sprinkled throughout the show including:
- Irene Bunner's Sun to Fire Improv
- L Wilkinson's Circles of Color
- Sandie E's Ad Lib Bubbles
As I walked around the show floor and visited with each of these finished quilts, I was just so incredibly proud to play a small role in the creation of each of these fun and fabulous finishes!! Many thanks to all who entered their quilts and gave permission for me to include on my blog.
