This show is held in the same location as PIQF, but in a different hall (I think). I went late, but got there in time to help finish hanging the BAMQG quilts. Amanda, Kelly and Michelle had it well in hand. I added an extra pair of hands and driving skills.
The biggest problem we ran into was the creases in the quilts. I know there isn't much we can do about it in general, but we went to lunch to decide on our next move. At lunch we decided that yes, we needed a steamer or a super duper steam iron. On the way back to finish our work, we stopped at Fry's to see what they had.
Funnily enough, everyone else at the quilt show came running over when they saw the steam, thinking there was a fire. When they saw what we were doing and that there wasn't a fire, they thought we were brilliant.
A few others, including the featured artist, asked to borrow it. Every quilt show management should have one.

We had a fun time and the quilts look great.
