I have been wanting to get down to see Barb Vedder’s (Fun with Barb) quilts at the New England Museum since it opened in January. Finally, I was able to free up a day and it just happened to be the same day that the American Quilt Study Group was holding its regional quilt study day. Win – win!
Some blocks she made close to the original, and in some, she used Alice’s inspiration and added her own fun little elements to make them truly unique. I was so happy to finally see this quilt in person.
I can show you this remarkable bed hanging that belongs to the museum. Marcus Fabrics made reproductions of many of these prints years ago as part of one of JudieRothermel’s collections. Aren’t these amazing?
I was so thankful to be able to ride down with my friend Laurie whom I hadn’t seen in ages so it made the whole day truly complete!
