We're home! It was a great trip-we went to all the quilt exhibits that I hoped to get to-including the Baltimore Album exhibit in Baltimore-and saw many wonderful quilts. The Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Connecticut proved to be a lovely small museum in itself (saw an Egyptian mummy and a Toulouse Latrec!) . The quilt exhibit was small but very nice with a wonderful Crazy Quilt that had the most embroidery I've ever seen on a Crazy plus padded work and even pom-poms. I loved this: the maker, Mrs. Signora A. May, willed the quilt to the museum!
Here are some pictures from one of the few places that allowed them: Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts. I love the quilted bonnets... but this quilted petticoat is just too beautiful.
