Blast of Baskets - show set up day! June 2, 2016

This is how it's done, folks, with LOTS of quilts, stands, and WORK.  Started early, ended late.  250+ quilts, four vendors, BIG boutique, demonstration area, and bed turning.  All ready for YOU at 10:00 Friday morning.  We look forward to welcoming you to our great quilt show!

An ENORMOUS amount of help from Gary and Nathan!

Becky loads large quilts onto the crossbars. 
This is why we need SLEEVES on the backs of our quilts!

The big banquet room is now FULL of large quilts!

Smaller quilts get pinned to background sheets.
Shirley and Jennifer are professionals!

Renee is so busy that it's hard to get a photograph of her.
That 1/125th of a second shutter speed isn't fast enough!
But here's a good try.

Sandy helps arrange the holiday entries.

More pinning and arranging - like a collage!

In the meantime, our Blast of Baskets raffle quilt goes up!
The Blast of Birds raffle quilt is cleverly stored behind it.
Only a few tickets left for Blast of Baskets!
Ticket sales for Blast of Birds begin Saturday after 4 p.m.
Thanks to Gary and Dave for figuring out how to hang these!

Noni arranges the 12 x 12 exhibition for hanging.
See you all tomorrow!
