We visited the Beach Museum of Art at Kansas State University in Manhattan today to see Pieces of Time, an exhibition that features a selection of American quilts (1840-1950). They are from the Historic Costume & Textile Museum in the College of Human Ecology (Home Ec in my era).
The flag quilt shown here is spectacular. You can see about 15 other swell quilts. There's a little something for everyone. A highlight for me was an 1885 Crazy Quilt with incredible stitchery.
Other fun things to do while you're in Manhattan:
- Visit the Strecker-Nelson Gallery downtown.
- We ate at The Chef diner downtown - it's great.
- MMM. Get ice cream at Call Hall on the KSU campus.
- Stop at a thrift shop, enjoy the views in the Flint Hills.
The flag & eagle quilt is wonderful!ReplyDelete
