Its a Small QOV world

QOV was featured at the Lincoln (NE) Quilters Guild quilt show May 18-20 in Lincoln, NE.  Julia and I were manning the QOV table where we handed out QOV literature, invited visitors to the show to sign a QOV quilt block, answered questions about the quilts on display and QOV in general, etc.  Two ladies approached the table, and we were chatting about QOV while they signed blocks.  One mentioned she was from Colorado, and the other from Wyoming.  We asked where in Wyoming since I am also from Wyoming; she said Riverton so we asked if she had ever visited Sheep Camp Quilts in Shoshoni, which, of course she had.  Then, I commented that there is also a rather famous blogger from the Riverton area, who has a blog called Wyoming Breezes.  She laughed and said "well, that is me, and I am NOT famous!"    We explained that yes, she is, and that we totally appreciate her 12 in 12 QOV Challenge!

Attached is a pic of all of us standing by the QOV display (from left to right, Sara, Nancy and Julia)


  1. Great story! It really is a small world, isn't it? It's also made smaller by our association with Quilts of Valor. Thanks for sharing.

    I have family connections to Riverton, also. Can you imagine such a small town having so many people connected to it?

  4. Oh yes I think she is famous too! Someone who makes so many quilts and baby blankets must be famous!! :)

  5. The QOV exhibit in Lincoln was amazing! The variety of designs certainly provided a lot of inspiration.

    My sister and I stumbled across the show in Lincoln seemingly by accident, but I am convinced a higher power guided our path. It was such fun meeting Sara and Julia: I feel blessed that our paths crossed in Lincoln.

    Keep up the good work, Lincoln Quilter's Guild members. Your support for the Quilts of Valor program is awesome!
