quilt-art-color design!

The University of Nebraska's quilt (museum) -Awesome

our story- we recorded a friendship story (just QT and K8) and a family story with 4 of us including J and Hh.

the exhibit was fascinating, the quilts under the microscope and the Perspective ( contemporary quilts) we so awesome!! unbelievable the color techniques and different style was so interesting. the color the vibe, the audio tour a smashing success. The under the microscope equally interesting in the things not to do to the quilts ( like wash them) and the deterioration that happens with different factors like bleaching in calico's ( red ones were especially vulnerably) and iron ore used to create the color brown - caused oxidation -read as rusted- and this ate away fabric too... the girls were even intrigued i think with the clothing and fabric in detail and close up.

The only thing we didn't get to do was Take pictures of any of the quilts. but the day was great.

We went to the Germans from Russia museum and research center too. There was a large population that were settled in Nebraska- they were interesting too. We took pictures of the things that they used and brought with them from the old country. they have a large ansestry-geneology study center.

always fun adventure and cool things with our friends
