International Quilt Festival Long Beach Pre-show Set Up

It was so nice to be back in Southern California for another Quilt Festival. This is the lovely view from our hotel window at the Hyatt.

Here’s what the convention center looks like the day before festival opens. It is amazing how it all comes together in a relatively short period of time.

That’s a lot of lightbulbs!

6 of us hung the ‘Rituals’ exhibit organized by curators Jamie Fingal and Leslie Jenisen. Each quilt is
2′ x 5′ and will travel to each International Quilt Festival venue over the next year, including the newly added Chicago location.

the hanging crew: Leslie, Me, Julie, Jamie, Sherry and Peggy



Leslie, Jamie and I volunteered to put up the Artist Village exhibit curated by Kathy York. The platform was longer than the exhibit so we decided to put the quilt on point and rearrange the houses, what fun we had doing that.

Stay tuned for posts from my classes.

    It just makes me smile in seeing your pictures and remembering what a great time we had together at Festival. See you in Houston! Onward and upward.

  3. Loving the pic, wish I was there, still haven’t used my copper sheets from the class in Cinci, but maybe soon in a book I am making for the grandkids.
