Quilts as Art

I have been spending a wonderful few days in NYC with my daughter, close friends and family. For a change we have been in a hotel in midtown across the street from several bead shops.... I was pretty good! The art work in the hotel we are in are all quilts that have been framed. There is nothing sophisticated about them but they are all charming. They are made out of cottons that look like they were probably dyed using natural dye and they are all hand stitched. I was able to take some photos... not very good ones but at least the idea is here. The hallways are narrow and the angles were not good. Enjoy.

Interesting to see that the pieces are all framed as well. What lovely works of art.

Hi, I found your blog by surfing through the SAQA ring and I just wanted to say I really love those quilts! Whee they under glass? or just framed in?
