Last Two Weeks for "American Quilts, The Democratic Art" in Bellingham

This incredible quilt is coming to my house in two weeks!
Last two weeks for "American Quilts, The Democratic Art, 1780-2007" at the Whatcom Museum in Bellingham, Washington. Excellent exhibition, worth traveling to, and certainly one of the best of the year. It was curated by the great Bob Shaw and Julie Silber, so how could it be anything but extraordinary? This wonderful Fans variation quilt is part of the exhibit, and if you enjoy books about quilts, you may have seen it on the cover of Bob's book.

The quilt is coming from Laura Fisher at Fisher Heritage in New York, and I'm sure Laura will be a little sad to see it go, but it's coming to a good home. It will be well loved and shared with many. One of my other quilts is in the exhibit, and I'll be glad to see it back, too. We missed having it in Nebraska, but I was absolutely delighted to be part of the exhibition in Bellingham.

Runs through October 28th. For information about the exhibition, click here. To buy the book, click here
