New England Quilt Museum

 

I am so honored to be sharing the walls (different galleries) of the New England Quilt Museum with the fabulous “Yellow and Orange” quilts from the Pilgrim Roy collection. Both exhibits will be up from March 3 through May 22 along with a few yellow and orange quilts from the museum's permanent collection. 


 When Pam (Pamela Weeks, Curator, NEQM) asked me to choose 20 quilts, I had no idea whose quilts would be gracing the other galleries. It seems fitting that these glorious antiques will be up at the same time as mine since yellow is my favorite color. 


 If you live in (or near) New England I hope you will be able to view these gems in person. NEQM has somewhat reduced hours and they are adhering to the CDC guidelines, so you may want to check their website (here) or call before venturing out. There is so much to see, you will be rewarded for your effort.

I’m hoping to get down on the first warm (o.k. relatively warm) Saturday to be able to meet for an outside lunch with a few friends.

  5. Beautiful quilts, Wendy. I love the leaves -- colors, placement, pattern, everything!
    Living in Ohio I doubt I will make it to the exhibit but I think you said (I hope you said!) you would share photos on your blog.
    Surely it will be warm enough for a picnic in May!

  9. Would you share how the top (first) quilt was constructed? Were the pieces appliqued on a background piece? Just wondering how you achieved that cobblestone look :)
