Installation Day at Festival of Quilts UK

Today was installation day at gallery TG 27 at the Festival of Quilts at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham. There is something very satisfying about transforming a blank gallery from this:Festival of Quilts -before

to this:Festival of Quilts -afterWhile my curatorial assistant (aka my husband The Laundry King) was away checking into our accommodation with a nasty head cold, I did have help with installation. My job was to prepare the layout and get the works ready for the installation team. Three walls = three piles:

I will be presenting a curator floor talk each day at 11am and 2pm. This is a great time to purchase a catalogue too.  See you at the Festival of Quilts UK. All welcome!
