Greetings from Bowling Green, KY
For many years I have been a member of the Midwest Fabric Study Group whose primary purpose is the study of antique quilts and textiles. I know, Middle Tennessee is not in the Midwest, nor is Bowling Green, for that matter. But since a few of us are members of both MFSG and either the Kentucky or Tennessee study group, we combined meetings this month to enjoy the special exhibit in the Richardson Quilt Gallery in The Kentucky Museum on the campus of Western Kentucky University.

I especially like that they display many quilts on antique beds.

I love the subtle colors and fabulous chintzes in this beauty.
We also were taken to the textile storage area to see additional quilts that were not on display. What follows is a parade of some of the quilts and detail shots.
