Quilt Show Set up

I love when my guild does its quilt show but it also wears me out! I tell myself I am only going over to the activities center for a couple of hours to help out and before you know it the whole day has passed and I have to run home to get the baking done for the next day....zikes!

It looks like it will be a really good show though. Some great quilts are piled on the judges table waiting for her to do her thing today. We hung the two challenges yesterday. The Breast Cancer awareness challenge which had us decorate/design a bra is very fun.

The second was our vintage orphan block recycle challenge. These also were very creative! We got good participation in both which is encouraging!

Overall we have around 250 quilts in the show plus a couple of exhibits like some antique quilts and a soldiers quilts display which will be given to the residents of the local Veterans Home (The Grey Goose) when the show is over.
