DAR Hanging Quilts at local Bank

 
Every year our town has a celebration called Heritage Days.  The local DAR has permission from one of the larger banks to hang quilts over their second story railing.  It ALWAYS makes a lovely display. I've hung mine previously, so someone usually calls me and asks me to bring a few of mine, AND I brought a few belonging to my friend Jody (Goddess).  As I stood there, taking photos, dawdling, I was wondering what kind of security system was in place - no one seemed unduly concerned with my taking photos.

First is a BOM, then a wonderful crossword quilt - kewllll!  That blue rosette quilt is intriguing.  And I can't remember what that one was to the right of the blue rosette quilt.  I think they were make of 5 petals, and machine embroidered.

Below is an interesting Log Cabin, then Jody's "Goldenrod".

   This jacket was this detailed all 'round!
Below is my star quilt, Making Do, and then an antique Dresden Plate.  There were others - I just missed them.  They hang for one week - no prizes or ribbons, just for pleasure.

Thanks for calling me Wilma, and asking for a few of my quilts - I always enjoy folks seeing them.

Happy Quilting!

How fun to have a quilt show in a bank. In years past there have been quilt shows a few times in some historic buildings around here with 2nd floor railings. No one has done one in a few years, though, and I had forgotten about it until you shared this.
I got a kick out of the Crossword Puzzle quilt.

Interesting log cabin! I've never seen that arrangement. Great idea to hang quilts at the bank. Yours looks wonderful!

Thanks so much for the tour. What a great idea for a quick, no hassle show. I love your, hmm, was it Jamestown Landing, that you redesigned to make it your own? It looks lovely even from afar and a very successful quilt!

This is a really lovely idea. I think it is also a great way to showcase some real quilting talent.
