Quilts on tour again...

Quilts on tour again...

Tomorrow is the big event - 17 quilts from our first International Block Swap will be exhibited at this year's Festival of Quilts in Birmingham. If you are at the show, do come and visit us at stand O12! On the first day, Anke and Johann will welcome you because Jutta is still on the road, but will be at the show from Friday till Sunday.

The preparation for the Festival of Quilts was quite an adventure for us here at Quilt around the World. It is not everyday that we are kindly invited to show quilts at big show! We invested a lot of thought in how to pack and mail the quilts to Birmingham. Below we have included some picture of the evening when we (Anke, Johann and Jutta) actually put the quilts into the boxes:

Sorting the quilts...

Sorting the quilts according to our hanging plan.

Garment bags

... folding them carefully to put them into garment bags... at least one garment bag for each wall of our small gallery...

Packingq

.... and luckily, we were able to fit all IBS1 quilts available for the Travelling Exhibition into our stand!
