Field Trip

A couple of friends and I spent some time yesterday at an exhibit of American quilts from the 19th and early 20th centuries on display at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum on the Cornell University campus in Ithaca, NY. No photography was permitted, so all I have to share with you is a photo of the brochure. The exhibit has about 20 bed-size quilts of various designs, including log cabin, ocean waves, and tumbling blocks, as well as a couple of examples of crazy quilting.

The exhibit is on display through August 1st. It's a nice trip if you're in the area...beautiful quilts, gorgeous college campus, and even a quilt shop to visit in town (I'll blog about that later).

You can't go wrong here! All wonderful things to do and share. Too bad you weren't able to take any photos. But I am looking forward to the quilt shop pics!

And it was air-conditioned! It was indeed a good trip.
