The other day I made a trip to the Gloucester County Historical Society Museum in Woodbury NJ
to view the antique quilt exhibit currently on display. I am so glad I went the quilts were amazing.
It was well worth the trip and if your anywhere near this Museum or even if you have to drive a few hours like I did make the time to go see this exhibit you won't be disappointed. I loved that I was able to see quilts that I have admired in the New Jersey Quilts 1777 to 1950 quilt documentation book in person. ( a must have book if your interested in antique quilts btw!)
Carolyn emailed me and said you MUST go you will love it. She was right! Carolyn blogged about the exhibit as well. My next few posts will be about the exhibit. I am going to focus on the fabrics that caught my attention and the incredible display of sewing tools through out the exhibit. I have never seen this many sewing tools in a museum before, it was incredible. My love of sewing tools comes from admiring my friend Judy's extensive collection.
Isn't this a beautiful appliqué block?
