It has been a long time since I have written on my blog. Lots to share.

Whenever I travel there has to be a quilt day. Bless my hubby!

We visited Shelburne Museum in Vermont to view
"Piecing Together the Past": Quilts" - a beautiful display of quilts by
Florence Peto (1880-1970). I found her work so soft with an elegance
and charm. I tried to imagine myself quilting in my 80's. What joy!
This generation was so regal and it reflects in their quilts.

The Quilts of Florence Peto - Shelburne Museum, Vermont
The Calico Garden - 1951
Florence Peto did a lot of floral applique using elaborate broderie-perse work.

Visit the web-site and view some of her work - Enjoy.
