I was thankful that the Quilt Museum was open on Sunday. It was a great experience. I do wish there was more of a variety of styles. I'm a beginning intermediate, and I did not feel represented, just overwhelmed.

Many of the quilts in this museum are true works of art that can be enjoyed by quilters and non-quilters alike. Truly amazing!

If you're thinking of skipping the quilt museum because you don't want to see a bunch of old quilts, re-think it. These quilts are art. Don't miss it if you're in the area.

We have a truck and RV parking lot on second street behind the museum. As long as there are places available you should be fine. RV's park back there every day.
