From the road ...

Gosh, a jump drive, a netbook, a motel (or McDonald's) with free WiFi, and wow! the blog goes on. I sometimes love modern technology. Here are a couple more quilts. The orange one will be in the mini "show". The other two will deck the walls. The clamps are holding folded quilts. There will be several displayed on a shelf in the shop and more piled in stacks in the owner's studio apartment. What quilter doesn't have more quilts than fit a space? All it took was a 5" x 7" (roughly) piece of fabric, some folding, and several swabs of glue to hold it all together. They look pretty realistic when stacked.
The next two photos are of the quilt show. I'd thought to angle the display frames, but then the backside quilts were hidden. Straight on is not as interesting, but all of the quilts can be seen.

The last photo shows the workroom curtains with some of the smaller quilts hanging. I'm using tiny, clear sticky dots (brand name Zots, I think). They should pull off easily later on, or so the box says. Meanwhile, they are stuck tight. I think they can stay up when the shop is moved to the YMCA for display at the real life quilt show.

Tomorrow we're going to visit the Great American Dollhouse Museum in Danville, Kentucky. I can hardly wait!

  3. Sherry, thanks for the award. I appreciate that you thought of my blog, but I'm going to decline it. I just don't have time to jump through all of the hoops it entails.
