Cotton Patch Quilt Show

Today 4 of my friends and I attended the Cotton Patch Quilt Show in Bakersfield.  Wow those ladies know how to quilt!  What a great show.  And I sure hope some of those Quilts will show up at the Best of the Valley Quilt Show in April.

Here is a great picture of Kay Pennington.  I have become friends with Kay on Facebook and Blogging.  But I got to meet her in person today.  She is a very talented lady.  And was the Featured Artist for the show.  I enjoyed seeing her quilts.  You can tell she puts a lot of time and effort in her work.  Beautiful!

Here is my BOTV Challenge,  It is the Little Red School House Block.

This is my statement for the challenge.

I will be retiring next year after working 38 years for the Tulare City School District.  After giving it some thought I decided the the Little Red School House has to be my "Best of the Valley".  Tulare City Schools provides the Children of Tulare the best possible Education and  Learning Environment.  And it has given me the opportunity to meet and become friends with some of the most wonderful people.  I am so proud to say I have worked for the Tulare City School District for the past 38 years.
