I'm waiting for my flight from DC to Houston and the internet is fast at the airport so I've uploaded some moe photos of the DAR exhibition. The quilting on the pink and cream quilt was extraordinary. The quilters of those days quilted feathers in the borders as well as other symbols which had meaning for their family. Sorry I hasn't had time or internet access to post the photos in order but you can get the general idea of their workmanship and beauty.
D.C. Has had beautiful warm weather and now I'm off for more quilts inspiration at Houston.
