March 2nd at the Thursday evening meeting my presentation and trunk show is "175 Years of Hexagons". It is closer to 200 years - but I'd rather over deliver!
I am bringing about 20 hexagon quilts in addition to other hexagon related ephemera. Since I am not flying I can bring more!
On Saturday morning, March 4 my presentation and trunk show is "19th Century Appliqué".
I'm looking forward to sharing some of the quilts from my collection as well as the stories of some of the 19th century quilt makers.
I hope to see some of you there!
Thank you very much to Minnesota Quilters for their interest in antique quilts and quilt history.
Minnesota has a state documentation book, if you are interested additional information click HERE.
I try not to pull the quilts from my 'vault' too soon.
For now I have stacks and stacks staged on my folding table in the order I will pack for the presentation.
Always fun to have them out and refold.
Everything made the cross country move successfully!
I use large roller bags for traveling with most of the quilts.
In some cases I keep the most rare examples in acid free boxes for storage and transporting. When I get them home I change out the acid free paper and the box goes back into the "vault".
On Saturday, March 4, from 1-4, Minnesota Quilters is also hosting my Back Basting Appliqué Workshop. We will work on a block from the Noah and Matilda Quilt in each students chosen color way.
Looking forward to lots of fun!!
