Pre-exhibit process for TN Aquarium, IMAX quilt exhibits, QuiltWeek Chattanooga

On Monday, the Chattanooga Modern Quilt Guild Committee members were stationed at the Chattanooga IMAX Theater for the drop-off of quilts for the Tennessee Aquarium and IMAX quilt exhibits, in conjunction with QuiltWeek Chattanooga. All anticipated quilt entries were present and accounted for at the scheduled drop-off time!

Between the aquarium River Journey exhibit, the Tennessee River Collaborative project, the IMAX exhibit and a special Friday night (September 12) after-hours reception, 5pm to 8pm, there will be over 50 quilts on display.

A big Thank You to all the CMQG members who contributed their time, energy, talent and cooperation toward making this outstanding exhibit a reality. Special kudos go out to my Co-Team Leaders, Joan Thornbury and Vista Mahan, for all your collaboration, hard work, and thoughtful and creative insights during the planning and execution of this project.

Here are several committee members diligently working on checking in quilts, handing out quilt pick-up receipts, tagging bags, and separating and packing the quilts for each exhibit.

We had a sneak peek at a few of the quilts that you can see at these exhibits.
