This was the front of the library and the room where the reception was held. However these doors were locked and guests had to enter through the lower level (the newer part of the library), then work their way up the Stairwell Gallery, then into the upper room then into the reception room. It worked out very well.
My friend, Sheila took all my pictures and this is just a small part of the
Stairwell Gallery. The space demanded that they be small quilts and I had 13 small quilts.
I turned out to be the perfect place for my box people because guests could get up very close to it and see the details. It garnered a lot of attention.
Cathy and her husband had purchased my political statement quilt last year and were interested in this one, In the Gorge. This was in the upstairs room.
It was also a good place for my Sunday Morning Suns. I'm explaining some of my techniques. It was interesting to see what non-fiber people thought of my work.

It turned out that I had the right amount of food, somewhat demolished here, but I bought way too much wine. Oh, well, with the holidays approaching I know it won't go to waste.

I wish I had taken pictures of my big quilts, but I was too busy mingling. I had 5 large quilts.
I don't know why I was such a nervous wreck about this, but I am glad it was well received and glad that it is behind me.The show will be up through Jan. 5, so if you are in the area, please stop in.
I am linking up with Off the Wall Friday.
