Quilt Show Perfection – Or Something Like It

Last Saturday at about 5 p.m. my guild’s quilt show was officially over when the last quilt was picked up.  We closed the doors at 4 p.m. By 4:45 all the quilts were unpinned from the drapes, folded, and sorted by entrants’ last names; and the pipe and drape was disassembled and neatly stacked on the rental outfits’ carts.  Mind you, we dismantled that ourselves with lots of help from a church youth group.

As God is my witness, I’ll never co-chair a quilt show again.  It’s nothing to do with my co-chairs, who were wonderful, or the stalwart guild member volunteers.  It’s just too much work.

But enough of that.  Let me share a photo of a fabulous quilt from our show.  Enjoy.

  1. Ha ha – you need to sell it so that someone else will want to do it next time!

    • I am on record, in writing, that I won’t co-chair the next show. I want to enjoy the show – wander around admiring the quilts and ogling the vendors’ ware – not worry about quilt labels, pipe and drape setup, and the like. Did I mention restocking the toilet paper in the bathroom?
