I was honored to be asked to have a display in the professional talent night at church for a second year. (I won't mention that I think they were a little desperate for displays this year after they changed the date, maybe.) You can see the display I set up last year here. Out of the seventeen large quilts shown, only one was made before my previous display. I wasn't as nervous as last year because I knew what to expect.
I loved how portable and free standing my new quilt ladder was. (In case you missed it, I have a tutorial for the side-by-side quilt ladder here.)
The display this year was definitely brighter!
It was fun including my favorite quilts (Modern Farmer's Wife, Floating, and Quilty Kisses).
I kept smaller quilts in the basket again. They were great for showing examples of different quilting styles.
One thing that was new this year is a quilt photo album I made. (More on that in a future post.)
The best part of the whole evening was when three 8-9 year old boys came over and had to look at every single page in the album. You know how much I love boys who are interested in quilts!
One reason why I was less nervous this year is because I set up a practice display at home.
It helped me keep a balance of height and color, even if it did make a MESS of my family room.
(Just keeping it real!)
P.S. I will be linking up with some of the fun parties on my sidebar. Check them out to see what other quilters have been making.
