I took lots of pictures of many of the Crazy Quilts they have on display with a few detail pictures of each one.
this one had some extensive aging damage, laddering silk and pieces that have just disintegrated with time so they hid that part behind a lamp. but the little bit of hand sewing and appliqué on it is lovely

the wall paper in each room on the bottom floor was period and stunning
they have restored the first floor as much as they could, since at one point during reconstruction there was an accident that burned down half the back end of the house!
Look at all the lovely details!
there are a bazillion on each one so I tried to keep it to a minimum.
this one had much in the way of seam treatments and not too many motifs so I picked the best ones

Another lovely quilt
In the kitchen they have tied to keep the look of it from the 1890's when the first owners lived here
how would you like to cook on that stove??
I think that's all for now. stay tuned there is much more to be seen.
the Laconner quilt museum is located in Laconner Washington. the town itself is a lovely place to visit too, right on the sound with lovely shops and beautiful views
and an annual quilt festival every year that the whole state participates in
