Kauai Quilt Show 2017-Part 2

As promised, here are some pictures taken at random of the show! Enjoy!

This year, we have storefront windows for display! Sorry for the glare on the glass, but what a lovely presentation! Left to right – all are donations quilts for sale!

Get ready to be dazzled!! 🙂


Pretty awesome, right?! My apologies to the artists whose quilts I missed. Some were sold before I could get a picture!

I hope you enjoy the pictures, but the quilts are so much more vibrant in person! Please visit as soon as you can! The show runs through February 22!





Kauai Quilt Show 2017

The Kauai Quilt Show 2017 will be from February 10-22 at the Kukui Grove Shopping Center, Lihue at the Kauai Society of Artists location. Thank you KSA for allowing us the use of your space.

Here are a few photos from this year’s setup…thanks to all the volunteers!


We are in a new space this year so the layout was carefully planned.


The poles are going up as quilts are being delivered!


Quilts being checked in.


Each quilt is labeled and numbered.


Once labeled, they are ready to hang!


Measuring, lighting is adjusted, hanging & rearranging quilts…busy, busy, busy!


2 of 3 baskets of donation quilts tagged and ready for sale!


Every quilt entered will be displayed…these are waiting for their spot.

I’ll post more pictures tomorrow of the final setup. It came together great and will be an awesome show! We have over 70 quilts and 20+ donation quilts. Various quilts are for sale and there will be Viewer’s Choice awards.

I hope you can attend! Admission is free!




A few more photos from KQS

It will be a few days before I sit the quilt show again so I thought I would share more photos I took during the opening day! Again, these are just random in order.



I have been asked if any of the quilts are for sale. Yes…any quilts that are for sale have a green sticker on the information card like this…


including this one I made…on my right and the Monstera Leaf on my left…


as well as our charity quilts have pink stickers…which SOMEHOW I failed to photograph! I’ll post a photo of those later…if there are any left! Sorry…



More KQS Meet the Quilter

As promised, here are a few more pictures from the quilt show in Kauai! I was able to get a few more quilters to pose with their quilts.


Quilt maker – Carmen Yasis (her quilt is sold!)

More to follow…




Kauai Quilt Show 2016-Setup Day

Putting a quilt show together, no matter the size, is a lot of work! The committee plans way in advance for advertising and promotion as well as finding a venue and sponsors.

Today was setup day for the show and I captured a few photos of what goes on behind the scenes. We are using the Kauai Society of Artists’ space at the Kukui Grove Center (mall).

An empty space waiting to be filled…



The guys getting ready to setup the poles for the quilts to hang from…thank you!


The quilts start arriving and will have a typed card with information on the front with the name of the quilt and maker. Another paper is attached to the back noting if the quilt will be judged and/or is for sale.



Once the poles are assembled, sheeting is attached to display the quilts…


Now that the quilts are checked in, labeled and hangers attached they are stacked and waiting for their spot in the show!



My quilts are in this pile somewhere!


A request for someone to go up the very tall ladder to hang the donation quilt…guess who was the brave one?! That would be me!




After the donation quilt is hung, the spot light was adjusted and two of my quilting friends, Elizabeth and Cheryl stand in for a test photo! See how much fun this is?!


Meanwhile, sorting and pricing is going fast and furious for the White Elephant Sale! This was where I spent most of my time. There will be an awesome White Elephant on display…check back tomorrow for that! All of the items have been graciously donated and the proceeds will go to charity. There is fabric, patterns, notions, magazines, books and other miscellaneous items that have been collected over the past year just for this.


And then, the quilts start going up!


There is still a heap of quilts to hang…opinions are given, discussed and considered as the show is hung…the quilts get rearranged a few times…




It’s a bit messy but no quilt is harmed in this process!

Check back tomorrow for the finished setup…I had to leave early but I’ll be there for opening day and the “Meet the Quilter” evening!

The Kauai Quilt Show is March 18 – 29 and is FREE admission! We’d love to see you there!
