Quilt Museum

On Friday, I took the kids to the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles. It's a pretty small museum, but they had two main exhibits. One exhibit were molas, which are pretty amazing, and I'd never seen so many in person. The other exhibit were quilts, very traditional, from about the 1850s to 1940s, I believe. Most, if not all of them were hand quilted. They were really phenomenal. They could either be inspiring or something that makes you put away your sewing for good. I have no desire to do hand quilting, but the detail was incredible. Even though these were obviously intended to be used on a bed, it was nice to see them hanging.

While the museum was rather small, I will definitely be returning again when their next exhibit opens.
