Did you see this article in the NYTimes on Ken Burns and his quilts?


While browsing facebook in my pj today (a rainy Sunday), I found this short piece on Ken Burns and his quilts.  Awesome.  This man is brilliant!  Aren't you all so proud to be of this tradition?  I particularly like the idea that quilts keep their secrets but also suggest the truth of the world and of living in it.

A couple pictures I took this morning as the sunshine broke through. Years ago I found this old jelly cabinet on the curb. George and I used it to store glassware and liquor til recently. Now it holds some of my quilts, the quilt made by my Gramma Emma Darlene Taylor and the quilt made by my great grandmother Della White. I guess we are a family of quilters as Daughter Becky Newcomer is an excellent quilter too. Doing our part to pass on the tradition!

Keep up the good and meaningful work, quilters.  Ken Burns is in our corner!

Perfect cabinet for your lovely quilts. And how lucky for you that your family has a history of quilting. My folks never heard of or had seen quilts ( only quilted " bedspreads").
