Usually when the forecast is for 6” to 8” of snow, I get excited for a nice quiet sew day. But I had finally arranged to see the exhibition, “Fabric of a Nation” at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and since it closes on Monday, I couldn’t let a little snow stop me.
The exhibition was much more than a collection of quilts. There was an emphasis on quilts in context with life’s triumphs and struggles. It was very moving. And, of course seeing both of Harriet Powers’ quilts was beyond my wildest expectations.
Be sure to keep an eye on the young woman, Bisa Butler, who made the quilt on the cover. She is a shining star and we will assuredly be seeing a lot of her.
