"Colors of the Harbor"
Art quilt exhibit by STITCH
Gig Harbor (WA) Library
Oct. 1 through early November
Yesterday was an exciting day for STITCH, my little art quilt group. We hung our first exhibit! It will be at the Gig Harbor Library the whole month of October and into early November (not sure of takedown date yet). I hope all of you within driving distance will come and soak in the colors.
We started by spreading out all 50 or so quilts on tables in the library's community room ...
... and then finding rods to fit each one.
We ran fishing line through the PVC rods or tied it to the ends of the wood rods and then tied it onto hooks, which were hung from the light boxes overhead.
Janet (above) decided where each piece would go and Pat (our tallest member) climbed up and down the ladder for four hours hanging everything.

That's Andrea's flower quilt behind her.
After hanging the larger anchor pieces, we organized others in groups and staged them on chairs and tables near where they would hang.
Here are some more shots showing how the pieces float throughout the room:

"pretty" pieces against one wall.
|Linda's "Back to School" fit perfectly in the kids' section.|
It all came together beautifully, and afterward those of us who still had time to spare adjourned to Panera's. Hope you enjoyed this little glimpse of our big day!
