A quilt show
I don't have anything to share for myself today but I do have a post to share with lots of quilt photos. Our county, Hanover in Virginia, has a new history museum and they were without an exhibit for 2 months. They came to us to ask if we could help them out. Three of our members worked very hard for 3 weeks and pulled together a great exhibit.
If you live in central Virginia, here are the specifics:
The museum is located at 7496 County Complex Rd, across from the Wickham Building in the Hanover County complex. Parking is in the main lot across the road from the museum. It's right next to the historic courthouse building. The museum hours are Tuesday - Friday noon - 4:00 and Saturday 10:00 - 2:00. The exhibit will run through December 12.
Share the exhibit details with your friends and family and be sure to get by to see it! Here are photos from the exhibit.
You can see the photos that I took at the exhibit on our quilt club blog. But I want to share these 2 photos of a historic quilt from our area.
This quilt is on loan from from Scotchtown, Patrick Henry's historic home. It's a spectacular quilt.
The hand-pieced hexagons are about 3/8" across. It's an amazing quilt.
Enjoy the rest of the photos at our quilt club blog.

Thank you for sharing the quilt show! Those are few and far between these days so even visiting virtually is a treat. Congratulations to the hard-working ladies that pulled it all together!
