Quilt Show Prep

My life has been taken over by preparations for a quilt show. For some reason, that I don't fully understand,  I seem to be in charge of my church's quilt show. I am not the best quilter in the group, but apparently I am a good organizer. And apparently, I'm bossy, so they let me boss everyone around.

We have done this once before. The show was so popular among the church members, that people have been asking us to do it again. Fortunately, I saved my file from the last time, so we aren't having to figure everything out. Last time, we filled the church with quilts (and the corridor and the church hall...) and it looked wonderful.

We included family quilts as well as quilts more recently made. Children brought their baby quilts, made by loving grandmas. We had quilts made by members of the congregation who are no longer with us. It was a celebration of who we are as a church and an extended family.

Saturday, we will do it again. If you are in the Ottawa area, and would like to drop in, we would love to see you!
