More Cheddar Quilts Two

These are the last of the photos of the cheddar quilts I took last week at the New England Quilt Museum. 
Now back home from my trip it seems a distant memory. Thank goodness for photos!!!!

I hope some of you manage to get to see these wonderful quilts.

A Slice Of Chedder

I made it to The New England Quilt Museum and to my surprise I was allowed to take photos without flash. If you get a chance to go its on until the 6th October. A must if you are in the area. 
So here goes.

Loved this one

Lots more photos to post so come back soon.

Small Treasures

It's incredibly hot here and am now sitting by the pool cooling off. This is the life a little bit of sight seeing  in the morning and relaxing in the afternoon.
Today's visit to the Bennnington Museum is possibly the nearest I'm going to get to see the Dear Jane quilt. Managed to pick up a leaflet about the upcoming exhibition of the 150th Anniversary of the quilt. But alas no Dear Jane for me once again. 
I did stop and pay my respects at her grave in Shaftesbury this morning. What a beautiful place she is laid to rest in with the Green Mountains in the background. 

Two sweet little doll quilts that I took through glass at the museum. 

Jane Stickles grave.

What a beautiful place. 
We drove on the back road to Bennington and crossed through his covered bridge.

I managed a little shopping at Country Treasures in Chester yesterday. Fabulous selection of repros so I couldn't not could I!!!!

Had to do a slight detour when I saw this barn sign. It was a quilt shop called Waterwheel. Lots of very bright fabrics and not one repro to be found. They were very nice and pretty sure their fabric appeals to the young and funky. I did buy a delightful bright panel to make something for Abi. 
So tomorrow we leave but not before I stop off at The New England quilt museum to see the latest exhibit of Pennsylvania cheddar quilts. 
Hope I'm allowed  to take photos- but some how think not. 

Till next time

Shelburne Museum

I have been lucky enough to visit the Shelburne Museum several times now but never get bored of looking at those wonderful quilts.

This bottom one is my favourite.
