Life is good - the sun has been shining on me! In October, I visited the Texas Quilt Museum with my daughter and granddaughter. The current exhibit, "Celebrating Great Quilts", includes antique quilts from the International Quilt Festival Collection. My granddaughter, 11, was the featured guest of the day. She was asked whether she preferred new or antique quilts. She replied, "Antique quilts because they tell a story." That's my girl!
A couple weeks later I attended the Houston Quilt Show. Antique quilts from the International Quilt Festival Collection were also on display at Houston (block above). It was quite a weekend. I had a quilt accepted to the 'In the American Tradition' exhibit. It was a wonderful experience. My quilt was included in show exhibit PR and was displayed at the end of the row.
The next weekend I attended the Colonial Williamsburg Quilt Conference. The weather was sunny and there was alot to see. I missed getting a spot on the DAR trip, but check out Barbara Brackman's post on the DAR and the Baltimore Album quilts on display at the Williamsburg DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum.
This quilt (1800- 1820) was also on display at the museum. It is a whole cloth quilt made from handerchief yardage which was meant to be cut apart and hemmed.
