I finally made it to the Pilgrim Roy Quilt Exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. It was quite exciting to see the quilts exhibited in the Museum. There are an amazing number of quilts on display and they are all amazing to see. I took quite a few photos and am sharing some of them here. But, you must try to go and see these quilts, and quickly because the exhibit is closing on July 27.
After soaking in all of the quilts I also took the time to wander over to see some of the Art of America, Contemporary Art and European Art.
Bob and I were in Vermont for a few days earlier this month and we spent one of those days at the Shelburne Museum. I was most interested in seeing the display of antique quilts. They have a collection of over 700 quilts, but of course, only a few are on display at a time. What really surprised and pleased me was the display of Velda Newman’s quilts, Larger than Life, which will be in the Hat and Fragrance Textile Gallery until October 31st.
Velda Newman was gracious to allow photography of her quilts, so I am sharing my photos, but you really should see them in person if you can to really appreciate the splendor of these works of art.
