Show...less then 24 hours

My guild's show opens in less than 24 hours...which is good since we have to be finished setting up by then and then I can sort of rest!

The show looks great!  We just had some challenges with new racks, new curtains, and modified old racks.

Also the profile of what we hung this year is very different.  Lots of large quilts...really large.  I thin it is due to all of the "quilt by check" and with quilters who have bough home long arms.  They are sure using them!

Other years we have had a lot of wearable and "others" but his year no jackets or wearables (only one bag!) but several table-runners, a pillow, and many dolls and foot-stools.  You just never know!

The Bonnie Hunter inspired quilt section looks great.  There is a "central mass" of them then some others are sprinkled thru-out the show and hanging from the railings.

I'll post lots of photos tomorrow.  I'm going in early so I can get photos before the doors open but after the last of ribbons are hung!
