Airing of the Quilts- Fri. & Sat.!!

one of 25 blocks in the "quilt with a million stitches"
If you're in the Portland area and love quilts, come visit the 21st Annual Airing of the Quilts at the Milwaukie Center Friday and Saturday, March 20th and 21st from 9AM to 4PM.

I am the featured guest this year, and in addition to displaying nine masterpiece quilts made between 1760 and 1880, I will also give a talk on Saturday at 11AM. To celebrate Spring, I thought I would bring out some nice, old quilts for this event.

The nine quilts on display will include three wholecloth quilts; a Revolutionary War period blue resist, a blue and white wholecloth made with toile, and an all-white stuffed work wholecloth with a weeping willow tree. There will also be six appliqué quilts including the Album with Lyre, c. 1850, by Mary Couchman Small of West Virginia-- the quilt with a million stitches!

Hope to see you there. For more information about the 21st Annual Airing of the Quilts at the Milwaukie Center, click here.
