Three of my quilts were on display- all from the Depression Era. I was happy the cheerful quilts fit the festive atmosphere. And in front of the quilts on the stage was a remarkable collection of antique toy sewing machines with ephemera from the collection of Jennie Best.
There were several modern quilts in the show. It seems like a lot more of these quilts are popping up lately, and there's something I really like about them. AnnMarie Cowley was one of the more prolific modern quilters, with several quilts in the show.

We had a nice visit in between bed turnings and talked about the plans for my exhibit at Latimer in the spring. It's going to be a good one, and will include several of my favorite quilts. Can't wait!
