Bedclothes and Cloths

Today, I visited the most wonderful quilt Exhibition at the Mary E. Black Gallery at the Nova Scotia Centre for Craft and Design, located next to Pier 21 at the Halifax Waterfront.  It ends on Sept. 1
  It is called -  Bedclothes and Cloths: The Quilts and Woven Textiles of Polly Greene - A Nova Scotia Quilter

Polly's handquilting is just the best I have seen for a while.  If you are a scrappy quilter, you would have just been in heaven, as I was.  I didnt get any photos of the woven textiles, I was just too wrapped up in the quilts!

  1. Thank you. It was a joy to look at.

  2. Wow, Linda, wish I lived closer!! But this was almost as good as being there. Thanks so much for sharing.

  3. Wow! That's an amazing exhibit. Wish I could get down to see it... Where does this Polly Greene live? I've never heard of her or seen her work before...?


Thanks for stopping by. I love to hear from you and I really appreciate that you have taken the time to leave a comment.
