More from Charleston - Crazy Quilts Exhibit


I mentioned in my last post about Charleston that I visited a wonderful crazy quilt exhibit at the Charleston Museum. I thought others would enjoy seeing some of my pics from there. I just LOVE them....and hope to make one some day.....you know....in all that spare time I have squirreled away.....in my bottom drawer. Anywho....enjoy!!


This was by far my fave quilt on display







Here are many closeups......I find them amazing. I LOVE the spider webs!! :)
























I found this cigarette silks quilt to be totally amazing. I was hoping to find some on Ebay, but no real luck so far. I think they would be so great to use in ART too!!






I hope you enjoyed "our" visit to the Crazy Quilt Exhibit!! :::Smiles:::

Great pix, Shelly! I don't quilt (I don't even like to sew on buttons), but I have an appreciation for them, especially the crazy quilts, the non-symmetrical ones. I have more modern tastes, and these less traditional quilts are gorgeous to me. I thought the cigarette silk quilts were really cool too.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful trip!
