Grandma's 70th birthday

My Mom turned 70 this month and I decided that an adventure would be more fun than a gift. She is an avid quilter and though I don't have the patience for it, I sure can appreciate the work. All of the quilts pictured are at the De Young. They are part of a collection belonging to one couple who noticed the similarity between Amish quilts and modern art. Truly beautiful work. I love the use of black even for a baby quilt. These quilts are in such good shape because they were never used. The quilts were put on display on beds only on Sunday when they might entertain guests.
