All of my publicity paid off and the reception was very crowded. For the first hour and a half it was wall to wall people. I was losing my voice from talking so much, meeting old and new friends, explaining pieces and techniques.
Beautiful arrangements gracing my home thanks to out of town relatives.
I did not get pictures of everything. I took the above after hanging the show on Thursday, but before the fine tuning. Any stray wires dangling from the bottom of the quilts were rolled up out of sight before the show.
I had my phone in my hand for the first half hour and never took a picture because I was so busy greeting people so I finally put it away. My sister took a few and the director took a lot, but they are on a CD that I have to pick up later this week.
Out of town relatives.
Part of the crowd scene.
My framed landscapes were also popular. Four out of six sold.
When we were hanging the show on Thursday they asked me to give a brief description of each quilt and its techniques to put on a sheet of paper to be handed out if guests wanted them. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they had put them in this pamphlet in a nice acrylic display box. This is one of the quilts that was in the show.
I didn't sell any of the pieces on the wall and I didn't expect to. The show will be up until July 18, so you never know, but I deemed the show a big success. I think a lot of people learned a lot about art quilts.
Now I have to get busy in my studio again. I have 4 pieces due in September. One is pieced and has to be quilted and the other three are still in my head. And the Craft Center wants some more Garden Studies.
