Kenmore Quilters Show

     I proudly belong to the Kenmore Quilters, a guild of about 40 fabulous quilters. Our triennial show was this past weekend. This time, I collected all the quilts at my house, photographed them quickly, and laid out the show on paper, assigning every quilt a specific place, bagging each one, labeled where it was to go. I think this made the show pretty cohesive and gave a strong presentation. It was a ton of work. We had a boutique, an incredible tea room, some vendors, fabric pool, and 57 baskets to raffle. 
    I took photos of all the quilts and their labels and will share only some of them here.
This is where you would walk in.
We chose a strong quilt to view there. The woman getting in the wheelchair entered 10 quilts, despite the fact she had a stroke and lost the use of her right arm and ability to walk.

The big winner was the one we picked to view upon entering

Super cool origami shirts of Hawaiian fabric 

Look what you can do with the exploding square block!

One of my favorites, it was also viewer's choice

It looks like it was a great show. And yes, quilt shows are a lot of work.

You were certainly kept very busy! Takes a heck of a lot of arranging, and a heck of a lot of helpers - if you're lucky!

Well bummer! I missed the show! Looks like a fantastic set up - worth all your hard work!

Debbie said...

Great job on the layout. Looks like you had a beautiful venue to use with good lighting. The quilts are wonderful and show such skill. Big applause to all.
57 baskets....that is fabulous!

Lovely show. I like the way the quilts were arranged, in alternating U shapes.
