You have six days to get to Baltimore to see the best crazy quilt exhibit I've ever seen at the Baltimore Museum of Art.
Run, walk, drive, take a train...it's absolutely worth your effort.
A small show of seven quilts...
What it lacks in size it makes up in quality.
The quilts are in amazing condition...
Anita Jones, the textile curator at the BMA, has outdone herself this time and we should all send her a thank you note!
The quilts are approachable and well-lit...
And you can get your face right up close and personal to see all their glorious details.
It's the best way to view a crazy quilt.
Even better, photography is allowed.
Here's just one detail to whet your appetite...what I believe to be a painted Baltimore Oriole and bee next to a sunflower.
The quiltmaker moved to Baltimore so it's possible that she included the Oriole to honor her new home.
There are so many beautiful details to these quilts that it will take me days to share the hundreds of close-ups that I was able to take.
That's the consolation prize for those of you who can't come to Baltimore.
The show is over next Sunday, November 29, so I wanted to get this posted so that anyone who can go before next Sunday will make the push to do so. I wouldn't steer you wrong!
Will try to post more tomorrow but it's a busy week.
