Laconner quilt museum installment #3

more from the museum, this one didn't have a note card for it or I lost it somewhere in transfer

this one has lovely embroidered motifs scattered across  it

 It also has a lovely lace border all around

 this pink robe was set out in what was the dining room of the house

no real detail work on it but very pretty seams
 note the extensive cracking and laddering as the silk has started to disintegrate and fade over time

this one uses many techniques for motif from paint to chenille

 this wonderful quilt by Sarah Brien is as whimsical as they come.

look at these as close up as you can they are very detailed

look for


a boy in a barrel






baby egg
AND mice made from apple seeds

 I'm sorry a couple of these are blurry but the piece was hung over an air vent and it flapped a little when the heat came on!

 upstairs was an exhibit of Sue Spargo's work

I got pictures of those that interested me the most

sharon boggins has some lovely close ups of these two quilts on her blog

Wow, lucky you to see this all up close. Very excited today - we have a new member of our sane quilters group and she wants to learn how to crazy quilt. Even better, she only lives maybe 10 miles or so from me. Tomorrow I'm taking some of my work in for her to look at and a block that I'm not going to use so she can get started.

One of the only reasons I regret moving to the east coast, is this museum...such a great place! Thanks for the pictures.
