Here is my last post from the PNW Quilt and Fiber Museum. Stars from the bed turning last weekend. Although this isn't technically a star, it has a similar feel to a feathered star so I put it in this post. It was a fabulous 2 color quilt and the maker did a very good job.
I didn't make a note of how many pieces were in each block, but they did make mention of it. I just know it's lots. This quilt maker was confident of her skills to tackle not just one block, but nine of these blocks.
Last up was this colorful hexagon piece. The maker created the diamond shapes, and then set them into tumbling blocks. She appliqued it onto this wonderful orange solid. Sorry, I didn't snap any full pictures of this one.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing some of the permanent collection from the PNW Quilt and Fiber Museum. As many of you know, it is our museums that are maintaining, preserving, and showing these fabulous textile treasures from the past, along with exceptional pieces from makers of today. Without our support, they struggle financially, and if we want to continue to have these amazing facilities be the keepers of past/present textiles we, as quilters need to financially support them. It's not enough to visit once in awhile, and pay the entrance fee.
For those of you in the Pacific Northwest, please consider becoming an Sustainable Member of our local museum. When I consider how much I spent on fabric throughout the year, sending $10 a month is less than a yard of fabric. I have no affiliation with this museum, but I do love the history of quilts and quilting and without our support, these "keeper of the quilts" will cease to exist.
