Quilt Exhibition Photos - 4






















It all came down quicker than it went up - just as well as we were all exhausted. We think we had a very successful show. 2 ladies sold quilts ( one was the bargello shown here ) and the folk demonstrating the expensive long arm quilter made a large sale too so they were rapt.
The rain that threatened most of the day was just starting to fall as we drove out the gate for home, so luckily the quilts and merchants goods didn't get wet.
The gollies and the big green NZ fabric quilt were 2 popular choices with viewers. The fawn old looking quilt was made from all recycled woollen blankets. The small quilt on the easel was log cabin houses - very effective.
I still have some more photos of our raffles and what I purchased so keep watching.

I can see why the bargello sold. It is an absolutely stunning quilt.

That Gollies quilt is really fun!
And Bargello is always so impressive.
Thanks for such wonderful treats!

I found you via Meggie of Life's Free Treats. So much hard work is put in to an exhibition by the quilter and the people who have to hang and display the quilts. I'm glad it was a success. I also have had a look at your previous posts and love the hexagon table mats. Now that is a good idea and a bit different. I might give them a go for Christmas. I'll add you to my favourites and will return to visit you again soon.

More pics, great. :)
You girls sure worked hard, I wish I could have been there, you have shown pics of some fantastic quilts. I love the gollies and wouldn't mind a real life look at those.
