Ready to show

     The quilt guild I belong to, Kenmore Quilters, has their show on Oct. 4th and 5th. For the past weeks, I have been photographing, organizing, and arranging all the quilts with my co-chair. We are talking over 120 quilts of various sizes. The show is once every three years. Today, we are labeling all the quilts keying them to where they will be hung and bagging them by rows. Yikes.
     A couple of mine are in the show, although not enough room for the OBW, sigh.

Sadly, no room for this

The back is a French fabric with a piece added

All the color pieces I auditioned for the back fill in stripe
The floral colorwash is in

Organized Chaos in in, check out the pieced striped binding

I will vote for the two that did get in...lol. The OBW deserves a place next time for sure. Know you are glad all the work is bagged for now. My guild's show is the same weekend.

With our local show, we don’t what we will need to hang until the end of the second of two take-in days. Pre-registration efforts have failed so we simply make it work ... not ideal but the shows always turn out great.

Oh I love them all - glad that two of them got it!! and organizing a Quilt show sounds like a TON of work!!

Well I'm sad to read that your glorious OBW is not going into the show but Organised Chaos and your Colorwash will add a fantastic boost of colour. Will you show us a few photos of the show please.

You have 2 beauties in the show and it must have been hard to decide which 2 out of the 3 would be in. They are all winners!

After all that hard work, remember to enjoy the quilt show.
