New York State of Mind

While the Fibre Arts Festival was taking place in Amherst, N.S. further down the east coast, Cooperstown, N.Y. was hosting a quilt exhibit entitled A New York State of Mind. I blogged about this earlier when my quilt Tropical Farrago was juried in as a finalist. Sponsored by the New York Historical Society, the exhibition held at the Fenimore Art Museum/Farmer's Museum was made up of quilts from traditional blocks...such as the New York Beauty. The list of finalists is posted on the museum website; I appear to be the only Canadian in the group.
