I'm just back from a Lincoln Nebraska, to the International Quilt Study Center & Museum
where I am on the Advisory board. It was our yearly meeting, and always a huge treat to get to spend time at QuiltHouse!
Currently, Bill Volckening is having a exhibit of some of his Double knit polyester quilts...
We both collect, he has more. ;-) We have a huge fondness for these quilts...Here isa flash back on an article on the two of us, My Double knit twin. ;-)
Reunited! Sort of. ;-)
We get a peak at many new acquisitions when we are there... Here is a new Hawaiian quilt they now have. it's always fun to see what new quilts are now part of the collection.
Godharis of Maharashtra. She told a very moving story about this quilt.
Thank you Geeta for my pin cushion. *wink!
I'll share more pictures this week! Happy to be home!
I remember my grandmother, who was in Tennessee at the time, telling my mother, who lived in Texas, she bought a quilt for her. Mom was so excited. When we visited on vacation, my grandmother pulled out this huge quilt - king size. And made entirely of polyester! It was like every yard of rejected polyester went into this quilt. I don't know what happened to it, but I am sure it still lives somewhere. You can't kill polyester.ReplyDelete
