Quilt Top is Done!
This week I visited the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in Golden. The current exhibit is Australia Uncovered and the artistry of the women that made the quilts is phenomenal and inspirational. The exhibit goes through July 26th and then the museum will move to a nearby location in Golden. The current building is small but has so much character. I'm glad I went to see it.
I'm happy that the museum will move to a large space because I really, really, really want to get my quilt in the Patchwork Pundits Take on Politics Exhibit this fall. If they take my quilt, they will need the extra space.
Here's my family and the cat holding it up:
And here's the other angle with all of them deciding to hide:
I counted the triangles in this labyrinth quilt before I started and it totaled 4,169. I'm not sure that's 100% accurate, but it's close.
Next step is to quilt it. Oh my.
I listen a number of different podcasts when I quilt, many of them political in nature. The more I listen, the crazier this election seems to me. Everyone should just walk in a labyrinth and chill.
Fun Fact: My mom took a class in the 70's from Eugenia Mitchell, the founder of the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum.
