Yesterday we hung the quilts from the ceiling. We had 26 pieces to hang in the foyer area, 5 down to the kid's area and another 8 in the kid's room. That number does not include the small and medium sized hangings on the wall and the board by the meeting rooms.
The look of the quilts hanging from the ceiling was incredible. The pictures don't give the impact you feel when you walk in and look at it in person. But if you are in the UK or Wisconsin it is the next best thing!
The center one is a gorgeous hand applique. These hit you when you walk in the front door.
We also have a number of dolls and purses and antique items and a gorgeous portrait in the glass cases.
Looking down on one side of the row. The work on the quilts is impressive. Some are machined quilted, some hand quilted.
These are the largest quilts that needed to be folded over the hanging posts because they were too long to hang. We were concerned about the effect, but it looks just fine!
Here is another group of the ceiling hangers. This is in the opposite side of the magazine stacks. The interesting thing is every time I have been in the library people have stopped me asking if any of them were for sale. I laughed, and said, make me an offer! One lady said, maybe A hundred dollars??
I really laughed then!
