Entrance display quilt.


Friday I drove to San Jose to see family and the San Jose Quilt Museum exhibit, Found/Made, a quilt collection including quilts from 1940-current. I went with my daughter-in-law and we enjoyed ourselves looking around and talking about fabric, quilts and the memories of vintage fabrics and quilt patterns in our lives. Good time! 
The song, 'Funky Town' reminds me of San Jose. It's a colorful mix of hustle, bustle, palm trees and a beautiful rose garden, San Jose Heritage Rose Garden, right in the middle.
Enjoy something beautiful this weekend, it keeps you young!

I wish I could see this in person but these photos are great. I like the interesting angles, especially the one along the clothes line.

Wonderful quilts - and even better to be able to spend quality time with your DIL. Wish mine lived closer so we could do the same!

The visit was great, nothing better than 'in person'.

This was an exciting exhibit - so inspiring. I'm looking forward to Rod's lecture at SCVQA in August. You remind me I should go again before it closes.
