Get Ready, Get Set...

Thursday night Sally and I got our quilts hung for the show. This picture shows Trisha who was a big help with details and suggestions!! Couldn't have done it without her. As featured quilters, we have our own little area in which to display. It was a little overwhelming at first, but as we got going, I started feeling happy and excited. They look great in our own little "gallery." It's a walled-off area in the museum, next to but separate from the general quilt display. It's the first year we have used this particular area for the featured quilters, and I really like the way it turned out!

Tomorrow husband and I will go help with general display set-up. It's so exciting to see all the beautiful quilts! Then the show opens on Wed., Feb 6. Pictures will appear here very soon.

A huge thank you to everyone who voted for my quilt setting (previous post)!!! Wow, getting so many comments was fun! Some of you made me laugh. I am pretty sure I am going to go with setting #2. I think it won the vote, and I like the movement in it, too. Plus, I agree with what Tonya said.. this setting avoids the big clumpy parts. I'll show you a picture of the finished product, hopefully sooner rather than later.
