Library Exhibit...

Just when you think it is safe to kick you feet up...whammm.

Late Tuesday night I found out my guild was supposed to have filled two very large (10-12 foot tall by 12-14 feet wide) cabinets at our new county library for this month's art display. This is even more important since there is a art in the park show next weekend just across the parking lot so there will be a lot of foot-traffic. Did I mention the display was supposed to have gone up on Monday? Duhhhh....
Anyway, we "made it so..." Wired up the Quilting emergency hot lines on Wednesday morning and collected quilts on Thursday (picture platic bags hand-offed off between cars in the Home Depot Parking lot...wonder what the security guys thought about that on the video?)
Today with the help of some quilt guild members plus their helpers (Mercedes and Margaret) we got the quilts up into the cases and even one on the wall in between. (Thank you guys!)

Wonderful. Love the star quilt - I thought you'd given that away to a nephew or something...

Strong work, Sio! Those displays look wonderful. There will be new quilters inspired from looking at it.

It looks great and thank you for the great show and tell. That is how I got into quilting, there was a quilt show at our library and I had to learn how to make a quilt...I could not stop quilting.
