Texas Quilt Museum
Although I am not able to go along and see the quilt hanging myself, my dad just happened to be travelling in America, and through Texas! He made a special trip to La Grange just to visit the museum, which was unfortunately closed the day he and his friends went. He did still take a couple of picture for me, managing to sneak a photo of my quilt through the window…
Open since 2011, the Texas Quilt Museum, is housed in two historic 1890s buildings, repurposed to showcase both antique and contemporary quilts from across the world with their high ceilings, brick walls, and original hardwood floors. Rather than house a permanent collection of their own, the museum rotates exhibitions throughout the year. I see that later in this year, the museum will host Bill Volckening’s New York Beauties collection.
At this stage there hasn’t been much information about the exhibit so I’m not sure who else has quilts hanging in the exhibition, although I have seen one hanging by Victoria Findlay Wolfe. Hopefully more comes to light before the end of the exhibition in April!
