New England Quilt Museum Visit

 

“Why do you quilt?” I’ve often been asked that question and I always pause to reflect. 1) I adore quilts. 2) I need an outlet for my creativity. 3) I love to stitch. 4) I love making quilts for friends, family and those in need. But perhaps most of all, I love to share what I have made with others.

 Seeing my quilts hanging at the New England Quilt Museum last week was a wonderful experience. The gallery space at NEQM is open and inviting. It most often consists of 3 separate invitational exhibitions along with a room for quilts from their collection.

 Pamela Weeks did a great job fitting my quilts in with the remarkable antiques from the Pilgrim Roy collection. Laura Lane pulled together a superb sample of NEQM quilts in yellows and cheddars. I love this room because it is often such a cross section of work. 

This was on the slant board in the collections room. Delicious!
This contemporary quilt in the collections was so unique.
I hope you can read the card. 
One of my favorite parts of the collection room is a dresser with plexiglass covers on the drawers that contain tops or other quilts that might be too fragile to hang. 


My only regret is that I was not able to make it down sooner as they all came off the walls on Saturday.

 I’m not a good photographer and I won’t overload you with photos of my quilts since most of them have been posted here before. I'll start with my favorite in the Pilgrim Roy collection. I just love this quilt!

And, this was my second favorite. 
But really, I loved them ALL! 



I'd love to make this one, but I'm afraid it wouldn't hang as straight as this one! 
It is hard to see, but this one is Purple and cheddar. Yum!! 
Here is a close up.


 To make the day complete, I enjoyed a delicious lunch with a few of my New England friends who made the trek to the museum. Life is good!

      I want to use this opportunity I have to say a big thanks to Dr Great for getting back my ex husband. I’m Linda Gibson from USA, after 7 years of marriage my husband left me for another woman I did whatever I could to get him back but all I did was in vain I was sad, but I didn’t lose hope of getting him back because I had faith in God. So I search online on how to get my husband back, and I came across a post of Dr Great of how he helped a lady to get back her ex, I contacted him and told him the pain I was going through, he told me what to do and I did it, then he casted a love spell for me 48 hours later my husband called me and told me he is sorry for what he did and that he misses me very much, later that day he came back home and beg for my forgiveness, since then our love grew stronger. For the marvelous things Dr Great has done for me it would be unfair for me not to let the whole world know that such a powerful spell caster do live. If you want to get back your ex fast email Dr Great at infinitylovespell@gmail.com or infinitylovespell@yahoo.com or add him up on WhatsApp +2348118829899 Blog: lindagibson90.blogspot.com view his blog http://infinitylovespell1.blogspot.com

  7. I know you make many beautiful quilts and I know you share them here on your blog, and I'm grateful that you do. I think one of the amazing things about having so many of your quilts on display in a museum is seeing them all together, all in one place, every part of them visible, all at the same time. It must be a very powerful experience. Thanks for sharing photos, Wendy.

  14. Congratulations on your part in the show and thanks for all the wonderful eye candy! I can see why you love the super-scrappy Pilgrim/Roy medallion quilt. And purple and cheddar sound just lovely to me!

  15. I love that photo of you in front of your beautiful quilt! What a wonderful day that must have been. I'm glad you were able to make it before the quilts all came down, even if you did cut it close.
    Thanks for sharing some bits of what you saw there. I love it all--and especially the purple and cheddar. But maybe that is because I recently tired of making a two color purple/cream quilt and have been throwing in cheddar here and there. :)

  22. I’m so excited my broken Marriage has been restored. “We recently made up, even though it was difficult. It’s been more than a month now, and everything feels like it’s returned to normal. He has began to treat me better, and it’s been a healing process for both of us. The nightmare that had lasted for almost 2 years before we broke up is finally over. It’s like we fell in love all over again! We’ve both put the past behind us, and are trying to move forward – and for the first time in a long time, the future looks a lot brighter. I can’t express in words how grateful I am Dr Great! It’s like we’ve finally rediscovered those things about each other that made us fall in love in the first place. All of the worrying and stress has simply vanished. Thank you Dr Great for saving my broken Marriage and brought my husband back to me!”. Me and my husband are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Great. If you have any problem contact Dr Great now and i guarantee you that he will help you contact him through

  23. Herpes can be cured because it truly has a complete cure. I’m a living witness of it because I recently got rid of my HSV VIRUS within just two weeks. And as I speak right now! I’m perfectly cured from the herpes disease.  There is a cure and it's called herbal medicine. I'm so glad to have come in contact with Herbal doctor Kham who is also known as the two weeks healer of herpes virus. Doctor Kham got me cured completely from my long term genital herpes (HSV VIRUS) with the help of his powerful and effective herbal medication which I took for only two weeks, and I got a good result being cured from the herpes disease. If you are out there diagnosed or suffering from the herpes virus you can reach out to Herbal doctor Kham for help in getting rid of your herpes virus forever just the way he helped me got rid of mine; His email address is dr.khamcaregiver@gmail.com or for his quick response to you, you can reach him on WhatsApp with +2348159922297 The medical industry/Big Pharmacies make huge profits off treatments and modern drugs/medicines that can't even get the herpes virus cured. That's why they don't want you to know the cure. Aaron Traywick had a cure for HIV and herpes and he turned up dead like a week later, even Nipsey Hussell was murdered along with Lisa Left Eye Lopes by the US Government simply because these people were doing a research on how Dr Sebi makes herb for the cure to herpes virus and HIV. The Doctor Sebi in question was also killed by the US Government just because he was having the cure to herpes and HIV. Don't you find that fishy? You can Also Visit his website to know more about him at > https://herbal-dr-kham.jimdosite.com

  25. Hi viewers, I'm posting this comment as a fulfillment of a promise I made to Herbalist Dr. Kham, I told him I would testify about him when I get cured from herpes in two weeks by his treatment. I got my test result and I finally tested negative, It really feels good to have my life back and I am so thankful to Dr. Kham for helping me out. My health was horrible before I decided to try the herbal medication of Dr. Kham. I felt there was no hope for my health and I was to try herbal medication and I was thinking it wouldn’t work because I have visited so many hospitals but had the same result. However, I was convinced by my friend to try herbal medicine because I wanted to get rid of HSV-2. The herbal medication that was given to me was really quick and easy to take, and since I have been taking it for less than 2 weeks I have less of an outbreak. But within 3 week I was fully cured from HSV-2. The herbal medicine really works. Thank you so much Dr. Kham, You can Email him via dr.khamcaregiver@gmail.com or visit his website: https://herbal-dr-kham.jimdosite.com/
