Are you interested in old, historic quilts?
Did you know that the Smithsonian Museum has a whole section devoted to quilts? If you are unable to get there, you can actually view the National Quilt Collection from the comfort of your home. Make a cup of tea, set aside some time for yourself and have fun exploring! I love seeing all the hand quilting.
Below is an excerpt from the Museum:
“The National Quilt Collection incorporates quilts from various ethnic groups and social classes, for quilts are not the domain of a specific race or class, but can be a part of anyone’s heritage and treasured as such. Whether of rich or humble fabrics, large in size or small, expertly crafted or not, well-worn or pristine, quilts in the National Quilt Collection provide a textile narrative that contributes to America’s complex and diverse history.” ~ National Quilt Collection
