I took advantage of the setup to take a number of photos through the windows of the shop with the lights on. I'll process and post some of them another day. This last photo is the view through the front door. You can see part of the well-stocked shelf unit, the little boy, and part of the blonde shopper as well as the bolts of muslin under the counter.

Quilt Shop at the Show
Today was the first day of the quilt show of the Country Patchwork Quilter's Guild in Marshall, Missouri. The mini quilt shop is having its first outing. This is the view from the ticket desk. Look what's in a place of prominence. Several hundred visitors came to the show, and most of them stopped to ooh and aah over the mini quilt shop. Here is a photo of the skirt. Lloyd took one look and commented that I'd left the fringe off the bottom. All floats in the Mardi Gras parades have fringe covering the wheels. Somehow I hadn't looked at the display table as a float, but several people who heard him teased me on and off all day. You can see a faint horizontal line where the roof angle begins. That's where the vertical Plexiglass and the 4" strip meet. Together they closed up the shop and kept it safe from exploring fingers. Although, I must admit that the visitors were very courteous. I think that being quilters, they are accustomed not to touch quilts on display.
