Getting ready for the Quilt Expo

This week Gerrie and I met at my studio and opened up the two big boxes containing all of the Twelve by Twelve quilts sent to us from IQF Long Beach. We decided we needed to inspect each quilt and make sure they are in good condition and properly attached to the felt panels for exhibit at the Quilt Expo later this month. (See the details below) They are like old friends now and we were so happy to see each one again. We made a couple of tiny repairs and reattached some corners. Overall, they look great for all the traveling they have done. I can't wait to see them hanging again and to share them with our local friends. Gerrie and I will be there to greet visitors and answer questions. Be sure to find us if you will be there too!

I enjoy getting up close and personal with these little gems. It is an awesome thing to see all of them together like this.

Their traveling bags look like they've worked out well. :-)

Hello "Caliente", the quilt showing in the photo. That little piece has travelled far and wide over the past 2.75 years: Asheville, Melbourne, Gosford, Hamilton, Christchurch, Chilcompton, Birmingham, Houston, Cincinnti, Long Beach and now Portland. Thank Terry and Gerrie for your TLC.
