This quilt was chosen for the exhibition titled: Quilts All American Beauty. And it was on display at Quilt Festival '80, which was held at the lovely Shamrock Hilton Hotel.
Were you there? Do you remember this quilt? Do you know who made it?
Somebody out there knows who that quilter was. I would love to hear from you!
As I stated in my blog post yesterday, I am currently researching and writing a book on the 45 year history of the International Quilt Festival, and the two women who created Festival, Karey Bresenhan and Nancy O'Bryant Puentes.
I think a quilt this quirky from 1980 certainly deserves a mention. Maybe you know another quilt story related to Festival that's equally quirky or infamous. If so, please share.
