Anyway... even with my worried and distracted mind, I was so grateful to see this quilt show.
I nearly cried when I first walked in - such striking quilts so beautifully displayed -
|Log Cabin, Windmill Blades variation, Ohio, about 1890|
The following quilt attracted a crowd:
|Field of Diamonds, United States, about 1860|
|Thousand Pyramids, Amish, Ohio, about 1930|
The quilts were collected by visionaries Paul Pilgrim and Gerald Roy, starting in the 1960's.
|Mennonite, Double Irish Chain on point, Pennsylvania, 1880-1890|
|Tumbler's Block, Pennsylvania, about 1920|
And here's an argument if there ever was one for tied quilts "counting" as quilts!
