Not Your Grandmother's Quilt Show
Whoo-hoo! I'm going to have 3 pieces on display for 3 months at our local Oshkosh Public Museum. This is the first time I'll have things hanging in a real museum. 3 months is a much longer run than the usual weekend quilt show. It's kind of like sending you kid off to school for the first time ... Will they be all right?
They ask you to put a value on the quilts you submit for insurance purposes. That was a new one for me : How to set a value on these 1-of-a kind original pattern quilts that could never be replaced?
For now, the walls are bare at home. I'll have to make a few new things at Quilt Camp this weekend to fill the empty spaces.
Here are the other 2 pieces that will be on display :
