    Car loaded with my quilts

    Pictures of my quilts, loaded in my car. I'm driving my quilts to Kalona's Museum, in Kalona, Ia. This morning, within the next 1/2 hr. My quilts will be on display from Aug 1st thru Oct 31st. After counting over & over, I believe I have 25-26. I'll get a count when my car gets unloadedName:  IMG_0468.JPG

    ​Go from point A to B with no stops until unloaded. There are so many horror stories of quilts left for just a bit stolen.

    That's a lot of quilts!

    Hope you have photographed them all and get receipts for everything when you get there.

    Also - check on their/your insurance policies in case "something" happens to them.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.

    How exciting for you. I really wish I could get out there to see them, but doubt I can make it. Thinking of all the lucky people who will get to see so many of your beautiful quilts in person!

    what an honor. will you sell some of them?
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I was telling my husband about your quilts over at the museum. We're hoping to get over to see them. Congratulations, what an honor.

    So many beautiful quilts, all in one vehicle. Everyone will love looking at them.

    Try to hide them under cheap blankets or something. Lots of thieves out there. Good luck.

    I'm going to visit my MIL in Mt Pleasant in September. Kalona is definitely on my list of fun things to do. Can't wait to see your display!
