I spent Friday, Saturday, and Sunday this past weekend involved in helping put on my guilds every other year quilt show.  
On of our crew planning where everything is to go.  In the background you can see my 40 baskets ready for the raffle.  
The cubes are finally up, and ready to accept the quilts.
Lots and lots of quilts, just a few over 200 ready to start hanging.  
The vendors begin to arrive, this one and 35 more setting up.
My contribution, the red and black quilt.
And my February Challenge the flying geese and lavender strips.
And what's a quilt show without a little shopping.  I had very little time to actually shop.  I ran the basket raffle and also was the assistant to the treasurer doing bank deposits.  But, a quick minuet or two here and there and I managed a bit.  
Some fun Australian fabric.
Some great new Moda Grunge prints.
This wood print and the highlight of my purchases.  This flat screen light table.  Plugs in with a cord similar to an I Phone charger.
I had a great time, but I am ready to collapse into my chair for a day or so and try to get over the three days of 10 to 12 hours on my feet working on this show.  Definitely worth the effort.


  1. Oh my gosh, Donna! The guild I recently joined had to cancel this year's quilt show because no one was willing to head up the show committee. I can only imagine how much work was involved. You are going to love your light box, by the way -- it looks just like mine, and I was using it last night to mark embroidery stitching lines on my quilt top. Very handy! I hope you have a low-key, relaxing week ahead of you. You deserve it!!

  2. Sounds like you had a great time! Can't wait to see more about your light box and also the paints and stencils!

  3. oh the memories!
    your goodies look fun and the your quilts look great!

  4. Good to see you had a good time! There's a lot behind the scenes that goes into a quilt show.

  5. Wow, that looks like a whole lot of work AND fun!! I hope you are all rested up now! And that light pad is great!
