Best Use of Color

"Off the Grid: The Bill Volckening Collection" now on display at the
International Quilt Study Center & Museum, Lincoln, Nebraska
I was speechless when I saw these photos of my exhibition "Off the Grid, The Bill Volckening Collection" at the International Quilt Study Center & Museum in Nebraska. The curators, staff and volunteers did an excellent job with the installation and all the other details.

It was hard deciding which quilts were in and which ones were out, but I was happy with the selections. At first, I wasn't sure how the whole space would look. The one time I visited the museum was five years ago.

The orange shag rug and mod benches made me especially happy. So much strong color could make a person weak in the knees. It's good to have an oasis.

I saw a few exhibitions at the International Quilt Study Center & Museum when I first visited in 2012, and lots and lots of photos of their other exhibitions. All of them are beautifully done, but I think we may have taken the prize for Best Use of Color. For information about the exhibition, please visit the International Quilt Study Center & Museum website.
