Thank you again, for these lovelies.

How did you coordinate the titles/makers with the photos? Can you read the labels with your camera, or did you actually have a notebook?

Elaine,
All the quilts were familiar to me since I was involved with the show. However, I did zoom in on the tags of the quilts in iPhoto and then looked up the entries in the show program booklet.

Nellie, thanks for these photos. I do appreciate the effort of taking and posting them. Congratulations on such a great show. I was interested to see how the labels were attached to the quilt with bulldog clips - no pins!
