Happy Monday! Today, I have a special announcement. Apologies in advance for not having more details, but it's exciting news, so I just had to share.
Polyester quilts were part of my first article about the quilts of the 1970s, published in 2013 in American Quilter Magazine.
Around the same time, Generation Q Magazine named me one of the Double-Knit Twins, along with fellow collector and quiltmaker Victoria Findlay Wolfe. We are proud of the moniker. Growing up, Victoria slept under family-made polyester quilts in Minnesota.

Happily, I accepted the invitation to exhibit at the museum, and I'm excited we will be exhibiting polyester quilts. It will be an incredibly vibrant, dynamic exhibition, and a fresh look at quilts from the 1970s quilt revival. The exhibition will be in the summer, 2017. Stay tuned for more details.
