My quilting quild is 20 years this year, and we celebrated by putting up a grand exhibition last weekend. The exhibition took place in an old prison (now a museum) down town. We feared we would get few quilts to display, but we ended up spending almost 4 hours hanging up lots and lot of wonderful quilts.
The surroundings were perfect for our quilts, and the visitors where impressed. We got a lot of positive feedback, and several proclaimed that this was by far the best quilt exhibition they had ever visited!
We had several rooms and cells to fill, enabeling us to sort the quilts into different color themes and so on.
This hall we named the Japanese hall. It was filled with quilts made with japanese fabrics.
This Buggy Barn-quilt was made by my good friend Hege, with leftover (!!) blocks.
I know I have posted about this jewel before, but a good thing can never be seen too often. It is made by Inger Solveig (no blogg), and is hand sewed and stitched in its entirety. I dream of making this quilt some day.
We dressed the cells up really nice. I doubt they were this cozy when the prisoners lived here.
One of the cells were filled with care quilts. Our quild is a big contributor, last year we gave away app. 80 quilts!!
I will be back with more pictures from the exhibition.
Have fun sewing!
