Museum

/ posted in: PhotosQuilting

I decided today to go out and get some culture so I visited a museum. Actually, I was driving past yesterday and saw that they had a First Ladies exhibit that closes tomorrow so I decided to go. I always feel sorry for First Ladies. They have their lives totally upended by some crazy whim of their husbands.

I’d never been to this museum in spite of spending a lot of time at the next door fairgrounds. It was a great museum. It is devoted mainly to state history in the permanent exhibits. I learned a lot. The First Ladies exhibit was very good too. They had some of the dresses from the Smithsonian. It was no photography in that area unfortunately.

There was a display of quilts so I got some photos of that. I’m not a huge antique quilt fan since I tend to go for loud and obnoxious colors. But one quilt was amazing.

It is just a simple nine patch set on point but look at the detail picture.

Those nine patches are tiny! I think they are about 1.5 inches finished. It must have taken forever to make by hand.
