Menswear in Quilts - Fall Exhibit at NEQM

Laura Fisher, noted historian and textiles dealer, has curated a fascinating exhibit on quilts made from menswear. More than forty different objects, plus lots of ephemera (catalogs, patterns and such) make this especially relevant.

It's just opened at the New England Quilt Museum -- see an exhibit description and sample pieces here. And here's the press release. You only have through Nov. 15 of this year.

Kim Wulfert has a review of this unusual exhibit...take a look. Lots of photos and descriptions.

Wish I lived closer! I'd visit several hardly ever get a chance to see the humbler objects of our lives expressed like this -- both as useful objects, and as expressions of imagination. Wonderful!

Warm Breezes, Starry NIghts

This is one of the most visually appealing star blocks I've seen in a long time...       and the pattern is free, thanks to Cath at Wom...
