Art quilts at Gig Harbor Library

"Water, Earth and Sky" by Sherrie Spangler
If you're in the Gig Harbor, WA, area this month, stop by the library (see hours below) and check out the art quilt display. It was put together by Janet Larson and Pat Rosenthal, who have been hanging quilt shows at the library for years. This year they decided to focus on art quilts and put out the word among local quilters to bring our stuff. Here's a glimpse ...

"Best Buds" by Barbara Kadden

"Pastel Stars" by Janet Larson

"Vintage With a Twist" by Carol Arnold

"Mount Rainier" by Carol Arnold

I love the way the quilts seem to float over the books. They did a fantastic job of organizing and hanging everything in lickety-split time.

What a great space for this exhibit. And what library has such terrific hanging devices? Looks great. Wish more spaces were equiped with these wires. Heck, wish my house was equiped with these wires.

Great exhibit, Sherrie! We have a quilt show at our library every other year, and it's always such a treat to see the beautiful work on display! Thanks for sharing about this one.

What a great space to fly those lovely quilts! the suspension system is enviable and having a tall Pat to hang them doesn't hurt! tell Janet HI! love your chocolate pyramid and all the quilts are delicious!!

Ooo, my favorite is your Village Crossroads. Not sure I've seen it before but sure do like it.

Yes, the floaty installation is nice!

What a great idea - having the quilts float like that - plus you don't have to worry about anybody harming them. Love your pieces!
