The Party's Over

It takes about 7 hours to carefully arrange 123 quilts. First, you have to check them all in. Then you have to figure out what they are (size, shape, antique or modern). Then you painstakingly lay them over pews, communion table, piano, chairs, hang them on the wall.

Note the white gloves and attention to detail

The Wall Hangings are looking good
We put some of the wall hangings into the Tearoom
We were very careful with the lovely quilts we were loaned. However, some of our exhibitors were not as careful as they checked them in.
In the end, it looked lovely.

Now, don't you wish you had been there?

Amazingly, it took only 30 minutes to take everything down. At services, yesterday morning, the only sign of the show was the minister, asking those who had not yet picked up their quilts, to please get them out of his office!

  1. I DO wish I'd been there. Beautiful quilts. So much work! both in the making of the quilts and in the show itself. Well done.
