back home again

This 1970s polyester quilt recently returned home after a long road trip. During the last two years, it was traveling with "Modern Quilts: Designs of the New Century" -- an exhibition based on the book of the same title.

The exhibition appeared at The Dairy Barn Arts Center in Athens, Ohio, April 28 to June 17, 2018; The Schweinfurth Art Center in Auburn, New York, June 29 to August 19, 2018; and the Whatcom Museum in Bellingham, Washington, June 1 to August 25, 2019.

QuiltCon 2015, Austin, TX

The quilt came from an eBay seller in Georgia and was exhibited for the first time at QuiltCon 2015 in Austin, Texas. It was one of two quilts from my collection appearing in QuiltCon Magazine that year.

To welcome the quilt home, we napped under it, and our cat Lulu also got a little quilt time before it went back into storage.

  1. That quilt has hung in some very special places.... I guess it is special too.
