Next Quilt Exhibit at the Museum
The SAQA "This is a Quilt" exhibit was so successful that the Stratford Perth Museum will continue with a major exhibition of local quilts going back 150 years. I'm in the process of matting some individual quilt squares - some from the collection and some which have been loaned.
Some are constructed from the tiniest scraps - making the most of slim resources - recycled shirts, summer dresses, pajamas? The dotted square that is part of this 9-patch is only about 3"x3", and it is made up of 8 bits of fabric. Some show the folds of a hem line.
Fried eggs and cowboys :)
