Quilt History & Politics

Quilt Show

Quilters are such nice people.  I can’t even tell you how many people stopped me at the show over the weekend and told me how much they liked my “Authentic Self” quilt.  It was a quilt that I made just for myself with no thoughts about winning any ribbons and having people go out of their way to say positive things about the quilt was so much more meaningful to me than any ribbon could have been.

I also want to thank the people who came up to me to tell me how much they enjoyed the special exhibit that I put together with several of my guild colleagues.  The exhibit was entitled “History of Quilting in America” and it described the state of quilting during several historical periods from the colonial era to the modern age with quilt samples from each period.   In case you missed the show, I’ll post some of it here over the next few weeks.
