It seems like an age ago, even although it is only just over 6 weeks since the Scottish Quilting Show was held in Glasgow. How times have changed as the venue is now kitted out as one of the Nightingale Hospitals to deal with the expected surge in hospital patients requiring ICU beds as a result of COVID-19.

In March though not only was it my first visit to the Scottish Quilting Show in this venue, but it was also my first time exhibiting a quilt and stewarding at a show too!

My And Sew On quilt from Quiet Play's 2013 SAL was entered in the Contemporary Category with the title "A Quilters Cupboard". It didn't win any prizes and I certainly wasn't expecting it to, but I now have that first foray into entering a Quilt Show under my belt!

I had volunteered to steward at the exhibition too, which meant that I had plenty of time to admire the stunning quilts that were on view. One that was much admired by many of the visitors had taken 15 years to complete, a fact that was quite reassuring to the majority of the visitors when told, who claimed never to be able to create anything like it :)

This denim quilt was one of my favourites.

It was my first time visting the venue so I wasn't prepared for all of the questions about the location of toilets, particular stalls or products, having assumed that all I would be asked about as a steward was the quilts :)

Next time I volunteer to steward I will make sure that I have worked out in advance where all the facilities are in relation to the stand!


  1. That must have been interesting to steward and the quilt you entered is lovely. Hopefully, this pandemic will be over soon without all those beds being needed but it's good to know they are there.

  2. How great that you were able to steward a show where you had a quilt displayed! Were you able to overhear any comments about your piece? I'm sure they were positive, since its a darling quilt :)
