Merry #1

We got to Lincoln, Nebraska last weekend - just in time for the Red, White & Green All Over Show. It's at the Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery from now through February 5 and if you are anywhere nearby, it's well worth the trip. The gallery is small, located on the second floor of the Home Ec Building near 35th and Holdrege Streets but this show is knock-your-socks-off wonderful. You can read more about it at here.

I'll post photos of a few of my favorites. LOOK at these tiny stitches!

Here's the entire quilt. It's a Rose of Sharon pattern from 1850-1870. The maker is unknown and it was made in the US. It measures 84" x 84" and is hand appliqued and hand quilted.


  1. Sounds like a great show. Beautiful Rose of Sharon and thanks for including a detail - so folky and timeless!
