Four days of quilts
August 13, 2013
… and not many pictures of quilts! On setup day the car park was full of non-quilters -
And after that slow start, everything went really quickly for the four days of the show – lots of meetings, catching up, lots of visitors and very little time to scoot around and take pictures. The Quilting in Action section was in the customary good spot – within sight of coffee stops and the loos, both vital facilities if you are working solo! Opposite me was Janice Gunner
One of the quilts I did make a point of finding was Andrea Stracke’s “Citrine” – stunning work as always, and much admired. With the often dubious lighting in the show hall, it was easier to take close up sections rather than the full quilt -
That Antique Rose Star project has had an impact too. I always knew I was not the only one, and certainly not the first, to find it almost perfect for carry-around stitching. This lovely example arrived
as evidence (!) that it has served that purpose for quite a few others too.
The sales part of the show went quite well and I’m hoping to show one or two items here in the next post. The Cupboard has been completely emptied and a whole stack of quilts and samples piled up before returning fewer quilts and samples back to safety. Now I need to measure everything, take pictures, write descriptions etc. I may even find a few Tentmaker pieces to add to the “sell” stack….
Here’s the stack awaiting attention
