An Online Trunk Show?
Sure! Why not?!
Today, Sunday, September 23, 2018 I looked at my list of “to-do’s”. That was at 9am. I decided if I did not get myself out of this recliner I was NEVER going to get anything accomplished today to prepare for this coming week!
Looked at my list again…ok, let’s get going!
First item on my list: Put away Trunk Show Quilts, empty suitcases.
I asked my husband if he would help me carry 5 HEAVY filled suitcases from the basement to the 2 upstairs bedrooms that are not occupied by anyone…I had made up my mind that I was going to get all of my trunk show quilts out of the suitcases and let the quilts lay flat. Now I did this a few years ago, but since then all of my quilts have been folded up! NOT GOOD for the quilts at all! Creases form because I used cotton batting.
So, we dragged all the suitcases up 2 flights of stairs. Did I mention the suitcases were heavy? Oh my they were heavy!
He placed them in one bedroom and I started taking them out one at a time, placing them neatly on the 2 beds. One room has a queen size bed and the other has a full size bed. I went back and forth between the rooms placing quilts on the beds and taking pictures of each.
You can see the fold lines in the quilts. So, if you have your quilts always folded up and you never change them around, those fold lines make the quilts look kind of sad. Maybe you could take some time to pull the quilts out, let them air out on a bed or two.
I have categorized my quilts into 2 categories: Annie’s Publishing Company (Quilter’s World magazine, Annie’s Craft Store, Annie’s Creative Studio) and F&W (Fons & Porter/Quiltmaker/Quilty magazines).

By the end of October I will have 6 online technique classes for you to view. Plus I film tutorials for Annie’s Creative Studio. So, Look me up!
Emptying the suitcases, placing all the quilts onto the beds took me 2 hours. It was well worth it! All of my quilts are not here at home, I have a some on display at Decorative Stitch Quilt shop. These quilts are for my classes I am teaching at the shop.
And! I have a lot of my newest pattern quilts that are not included in the online trunk show. They are not quilted yet. I will do my best to get them quilted as soon as I finish the art quilt on my longarm…sorry, can’t show pictures yet…maybe one day I will 🙂
Now that I have stood on my slippered feet for 2 hours I think I am going to go take a little break!
Onto my next task…
Happy Quilting everyone and enjoy this beautiful Sunday!
