Hanging The Space Between Exhibit

Wednesday morning, Leslie, Jamie and I packed a van and a car full of quilts, suitcases and supplies for teaching and headed to Long Beach to check in to the hotel and hang The Space Between exhibit they curated.

We hung 40 quilts in record time, it probably helped that I'm so tall I could skip using the ladder and toss the hanging things over the top of the rods and adjust the quilts.

Without the AC on in the convention center it gets pretty warm on set up day. After several hours of hanging and adjusting the alignment of all the quilts, we were pooped.

The view from the convention floor.

We were thrilled to catch up with Pokey at the end of the day.


  1. Can't wait to see it in HOU. Now put your feet up...for a couple of seconds. Keep having fun!

  2. Put my feet up, Martha? lol, Don't I wish, now I have to prep for two classes at Create in a couple weeks, then fly off to Cleveland to shoot three more segments for QATV, which has a ton of prep work involved as well. Oh and I can't forget about meeting with lawyers about the big D and find a ton of paperwork for that, No rest for the weary! LOL

  3. What a beautiful show that is going to be. I cannot believe doing all that without air.


  4. Judy, A sincere thank you for your hard work on this exhibit. I am so honored to be a part of it. I wish I could have been there. You continue to be an inspiration. I know you are busy and would like to "take a breather" now and then, but there will be time for that later. Carpe Diem, Judy, Carpe Diem! I am so proud of you.

  5. Love you Rachel! Where would I be with out the support of wonderful women like you in my life? Can hardly wait to see you in Houston! xoxo
