ATTENTION QUILT LOVERS!

I know that there are a lot of quilters in this area. Well, here is one interesting exhibition. The Museum of the American Quilter's Society (National Quilt Museum in Paducah, KY) has a special regional exhibition "Quilts of the Pacific Rim". This exhibition answers the basic questions: "How do quilt designs differ when made in various regions of the United States?"and " Do Quilts made along the Pacific coast have a certain west coast style".

Quilts of Pacific RimCurrently on exhibit through March 25, "Quilts of the Pacific Rim" showcases the artistry of quilters from Alaska, California, Hawaii, Oregon and Washington. The Museum invited guilds in these states to select quilts made by current members that represent the guild's best craftsmanship. The exhibit illustrates how deeply quilters are involved in their communities and how that involvement flourishes at the guild level.

It would be interesting to see the show in person. No photograph can do true justice to a quilt. Only looking at one in person does the texture, the needlework and the fabrics that are part of the artistry, be seen. You can see other quilts from the show and the National Quilt Museum's (the largest quilt museum in the world) other two current exhibits on their page on Art Museum Touring.com. A friend who has been there told me it is a terrific place to visit especially for quilters and quilt lovers.
