    4th annual UNL Employee Quilt Show - pics

    This year we have 15 quilters and 29 quilts. I will just post overall pics, but if you want close up of any, let me know. I just thought 29 might be overwhelming.

    If you are in, or near, Lincoln Nebraska, come see our show! We will be in the Rotunda Gallery (seen here) at the Student Union on 14th & R St through 5 pm Thursday.

    We reopen no Friday morning at the Iternational Quilt Study Center at 33rd & Holdrege, and will be there through 4 pm March 14th.

    Our "beds" are actually banquet tables. The bed skirts are a twin size sheet cut lengthwise, then sewn end to end.

    How creative! But I guess whoever came up with the saying " Necessity is the mother of invention" must have been, or must have known, a quilter!?
