Well, the Quilt Show finished it’s run today. We had a lot of excellent feedback and it was a success. We will find out how financially successful we were in a couple of weeks, after all the expenses have been turned in.
The show comes down a lot faster than it goes up – I was able to leave the Civic Center with my quilts at 5:45. Take down was complete and there were only a few quilts waiting to be picked up.
We tested a new hanging system like the big shows use – Houston and Paducah. For us, I think it might be overkill especially since the cost is very high to purchase enough to hang all our quilts. It was worth the test however.
The raffle quilt was won by a guild member. I don’t think that has happened before.
Here are photos of the two ribbons won by quilts that I quilted.
The ribbons were paper pieced by guild members. I think they are beautiful!
