From set up on Friday to take down Sunday evening the quilt show went well. We rented the stands & uprights from a the Evening Star Quilters in Mineola which made the whole process for set up and hanging so much easier!
This first group showing is several of the guild members who are in the “master quilter category.
Jeri Riggs quilt is on the lower right. The link associated with Jeri’s name is to a specific post on her blog…once our show was over I gave Jeri a little quilt.
We were all pretty tired at this point.
This next shot is the set up of our boutique. Many members contributed hand made items to sell in the boutique. The next day I added a whole bunch of vintage crocheted table linens from my sweeties grand mother. I have a lot left – some of which may go to Cindy Needham.
The rest of our “master quilter” group being hung. There are two more, however I’ll show them in a later post. I spent several hours right where our volunteer is on Sunday talking about “Twilight in the Bronx” & “Moon Over Manhattan” I had a great time and ideas are forming for a future quilt or three.
while not a very great picture this broach has me thinking about another quilt…with trapunto and metallic and well, black Radiance. Hhmmm I can see a lot going on here. Oh, I can hardly wait to explore this on fabric. I think I want to spend some time drafting it out first.
Some of our challenge quilts from this years theme, “Energy!”
The quilt in the 2nd row from the left, bottom quilt, is the one I gave to Jeri Riggs.
More in a day or two including a trip to the New York Botanical Gardens…oh the mums!
