I recently found this book.
Fascinating insight into how the museum was founded and set up. But best of all, great photos of quilts.
The colours are a little washed out in these photos, but the originals are lovely.
The first quilt is from Pennsylvania c 1825. All the compass points are sharp and line up beautifullyThe second one is from Oregon c 1925. According to the book, it's a variation on the Tree of Life pattern called Cherry Trees, and was popular around the turn of the century.
These two quilts are among many favourites.
I can ask for little more than a hot bubble bath and a good book. (After a good sewing session, that is!)
