Last week, I went to see the exhibition of "New York Beauty" quilts at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in Golden, Colorado. The exhibition is now in its last week, its final day is October 25th. It is also the last exhibition in the museum's current gallery space. A new gallery will soon open across town, connected with their office space and library. Here are some photos.

Thank you, Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum for a job well done. Thank you to Quiltmania for sponsoring the exhibition. The books were selling out! Special thanks to Brenda Breadon for being there to greet me when I arrived. The future looks bright for the museum. The new location is not far from where they've been, and there will be more space. Hopefully I'll return one day to see it, and maybe even fill it up with quilts.
