Field Trip to the MFA

We finally made it to the MFA last week to see the Quilts and Color exhibit.

It was a lovely night of air-conditioned coolness and quilt gawking with friends.

The display of 60 quilts from the collection of Paul Pilgrim and Gerry Roy are grouped to illustrate principals of color theory.  I still can't get over the timeless beauty of these quilts that were made between 1890 and 1940.
 And the impact of seeing quilts hung in a gallery as the stunning works of art they truly are!!!

Quilts and Color runs until July 27th so there's still time to catch this not to be missed exhibit!!!

Don't forget our July meeting is this Saturday from 1-3 at the fabulous Fabric Place Basement.  Bring your favorite "can't quilt without it" notion to share with the group along with show and tell and Michael Miller challenge quilts.
