|The Frick Mansion Museum in the snow. I have toured this modest mansion many times, every season. Winter is a good time, Christmas decor goes up soon. I will be there.|
Last week I went to a local quilt show. Such a nice show, lots of antique quilts mixed in with the new ones. With our fancy tools and cutting devices etc. we forget just how different quilting was just a few years ago. When quilting was a 'hobby' or quilts were made for purposes of utility. Everyone needs a warm blanket.
Here are a few pics from that show, The Martha Washington Quilters Guild, Washington, Pa..
Isn't this quilt beautiful? It is pieced and hand quilted. I had permission to photograph the show, by the way.
Some things I know or wish I knew, and some general observations :
