Velda Newman’s Quilts

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.
