    We took the kids to a pioneer farm yesterday. In the basement of the museum they had a quilt display. I wish I'd had more time to take pictures. Here are a couple.

    Oh my gosh! I love that Grandma's Flower Garden quilt that looks like a mosaic! That's a great idea I might actually "steal".

    I was just thinking the same thing. That must have taken forever to make. It is stunning.

    It certainly is! It's gorgeous.

    Are those blocks displayed underneath the quilts?

    That hex star is great. Looks like mosiac tile.

    oh my..wish I could seen that...I love their quilt display, we used something like that at the Alaska state fair to showcase the top winning quilts. The arms made it easy to get a lot of quilts in a little space and the person showing them could move them and talk about each one. It was the BEST set up I have ever seen at a Fair or else where! Thanks for sharing!

    Yep, I'm from Iowa. :) It's called the Nelson Pioneer Farm in Oskaloosa. We had a great time. You could literally spend 3 hours there, just looking through the museum. There was some beautiful antiques too!!

    Where are you?

    I think so. I didn't get a chance to look closely on that side. I had my 2 youngest with me, plus my inlaws and dh were upstairs waiting on me. lol I had a hard time tearing myself away from them.
