I love sewing, and ever since I finished my first quilt, I have become obsessed with quilting! In fact, I am currently working on a quilted duvet cover in adorable woodland animal flannel prints for my bed. (It is almost too adorable to handle, I cannot WAIT to show you when I’m finished sewing it!)
Anyway, several months ago, I came across an Amazon Local deal in one of their emails (Amazon knows me so well, it’s a little scary, but also convenient) for a quilt exhibition at a local museum. It was a great deal, so naturally I snagged two tickets, and dragged my mom to the museum with me this past Sunday.
The “Quilts” exhibit at Muzeo Museum and Cultural Center features American quilts made starting as early as the 1800’s all the way to present day quilts and quilting techniques. The traditional, handmade quilts happen to be a favorite of mine, but today’s modern quilts, with their artistic, free form style, are definitely unique and just as amazing.
Check out these amazing, handcrafted quilts:
I hope you enjoyed a mini tour of the Quilts exhibit! There were so many amazing quilts, and I couldn’t possibly capture all of the incredible detail; it just doesn’t beat seeing it in person, but I hope you could get a sense of the history and artistry all the same.
I was so inspired by the quilts in the exhibition. If you are at all into sewing and you live in the area (or you know someone who is), I highly recommend checking out the Muzeo “Quilts” exhibit before they pack it up in February.
After soaking up the exhibit, my mom took some photos of me for Thursday’s Thrift Style Thursday post, and then we hit up the nearby Anaheim Packing District (the super cool, repurposed Sunkist Orange packing house with LOTS of yummy places to eat) for these amazing gelato and sorbetto “popsicles” from Popbar!
It was a great Sunday, and a great start to the new year. Have you done anything fun in 2015 yet? Got any plans to do anything special?? As always, thanks for reading!
