There's always a quilt at the top of the escalator on the second floor. This year it was an applique quilt on a sweet printed background. You can get 'up close and personal' with this quilt.
The second quilt is the backdrop for countless photo ops. There's a large banner above the quilt identifying the quilt event and year for documentation that you attended the show (a fun idea and you get your picture taken with a gorgeous antique quilt!). Here's this year's souvenir (sorry, thought I had cropped off the banner, but you get the idea) -
The third (alas, the last) quilt is a collaboration of two generations of quiltmakers. The top was pieced circa 1885 - 1895 (artist unknown). Tiny triangles were used to depict the texture of the pineapple fruit. Vicki Mangum dyed contemporary cheddar fabric to match the fabric from the original top. Two small borders of cheddar and muslin were added in 2003 and the quilt was machine-quilted by Kathy Colvin.
