Two great quiltshows are going into their final days.
At the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky you can see the whole collection of Inspired by Endangered Species. 182 quilts 24 x 24 inches, each of them depicting endangered animals, insects, flowers or sealife. It’s not only about these beautiful quilts but also about the stories behind them which are educational and sometimes heartbreaking. If you have any chance go see them before the show is closing on January 12.
At the Schweinfurth Art Center in Auburn, New York the 38th annual show of Quilts = Art = Quilts 2020 can be seen until January 10. 71 art quilts from around the world are on display – quilt art at it’s best. Watch this video to see the winning quilts.
If you have the chance go see the shows, if not you still can visit the websites. The Schweinfurth Art Center (https://schweinfurthartcenter.org) has a virtual walk through the galleries on its site and at https://inspiredbyendangeredspecies.blogspot.com you can see some of the quilts from the show.
And whatever you do – stay safe!
