Wrapped Quilts returned from the Public Museum
Since this was new to me, I thought it would be worth a blog post ... The museum quilt show closed after Mother's Day last weekend. The curator contacted all the artists to pick up our "wrapped" quilts. I didn't quite know what she meant by that ... but I had an idea.
Museum curators have a real reverence for "stuff." They know how to take care of artifacts with an eye towards preserving them through the ages. My quilts were returned carefully wrapped in a cotton sheet, tied with cotton string. Protected from dust and light ...
Far cry from how I turned them in in February!
