I received this email from the International Quilt Study Center a few weeks ago. It has a YouTube video embedded in it. I have copy and pasted the URL for you. I just love the historical aspects of quilts!
Here is the blurb that came in the email:
"Posing with Patchwork" was guest curated by Janet Finley, author of Quilts in Everyday Life, 1855-1955. Most of the photographs in this exhibition come from Finley's vintage photograph collection. They are paired with quilts from the IQSCM collection. The exhibition is on display through Nov. 30.
Would love to see pics of you and your quilts. Or better yet, any antique pics you have with family members and quilts.
I know we are super busy with Christmas/holiday sewing, cooking and entertaining right now. Would love a comment or two about what you are making for Christmas presents. I posted a pic (on Facebook)of the stockings I'm making for the boys' teachers, did you see them? I plan to stuff them with the teachers favorite candy, nuts, tea, coffee, etc. (I've emailed them and asked what they like). I also plan to put a Walmart gift card in it and call it a day. I'm all about gift cards and no wrapping. I HATE to wrap presents. One because I suck at it. Two because it seems like such a waste.
gotta run...keep quilting!
ps. Happy Thanksgiving! I'm so thankful for my faithful customers and my business. I'm living the dream!
