Sewing and Quilt Expo/Along the Spice Route

We were excited to attend the Sewing and Quilt Expo in Fredericksburg this weekend where our "Along the Spice Route" quilts were being exhibited.  You might remember that Elizabeth saw them in New Hampshire this summer, but this was Sue's first chance to see them on display, and to see the whole group in person as opposed to online photos.  What a treat!  It really is an impressive exhibit.  Kudos to Paula Golden and Ann Reardon for curating it, and inviting us to participate.
The exhibit sign tells the story of the spice route.
Half of the exhibit spanned one wall.
The other half faced it on the opposite wall.  In New Hampshire, they were set in alcoves, so there wasn't the impact of seeing them all at once.

Elizabeth with her China black pepper quilt.
This quilt by the curators depicts the ancient spice routes and the key shows where the various spices are found.

In additional posts, we'll share some of our favorites.  Hope you enjoy the virtual show!

  1. Refreshing theme, great quilts. I can just imagine a food/dip that would go with each quilt. I notice they displayed them next to the food court.
    I like quilts displayed on black.
