Spencer Museum Quilt - Urn Block
The urn block from the Spencer Museum quilt was so much fun to make. We were also so fortunate to visit the Amish Abstractions exhibit at the de Young Museum in San Francsico last weekend. Amish quilts just touch my soul, and it was wonderful to see them up close. Sorry, have no pictures to share because the museum didn't allow this. The quilting stitches were just exquisite - so tiny and even. What surprised me is that almost all of the quilts had machine sewn bindings where the machine stitching was visible on the front of the quilt. I wonder if this was done for strength? Would love to hear your thoughts on this.
