Quilt Show a Success.

Some final photos of our show here. I think we can be quite proud of our efforts. Everyone took my concerned comments about helping to heart and we had a wonderful band of helpers to take it all down. Some husbands dealt with the frames while the ladies lovingly took down the exhibits. Just raffles to draw, points to tally and a short debriefing, to go now.

Meg your" emissaries, " found me and my quilts and we had a long and pleasant chat - They had a really good look for you...and you enjoyed it!

The bottom photo is a comparison with a photo of the same quilt shown in a previous blog. I asked Clive the photographer who was taking semi- professional pics of our show why the white quilts were coming up SO fawn in my shots. He gave me a lot of advice and helped me put a piece of filter ? ( I've forgotten the right word ) over my flash. Look what a difference it makes - Thanks Clive!

Finally my favourite photo I took from the show was the top one. Our youngest viewer. The wee babe was really animated and definitely looking at the quilt as she was being told about it.

Wow! Well done, it sounds like your exhibition was a great success and you have some truly lovely quilts on display - thanks for all the pics, not sure which one I like best although I am partial to the lovel colour wash
BTW thanks for your birthday email, been trying to finish a quilt and haven't got around to replying but I will!

Thankyou so much for telling me how much I enjoyed seeing it all! HaHa!. You have no idea how much I wished I was there in person.
