Monday in Lincoln

Rebecka and I had a great Monday together visiting the International Quilt Study Center and Museum and the State Capitol. The Capitol is a wonderful building built between 1922 and 1932. The interior reflects the history of Nebraska with tiled floors and ceramic mosaic ceilings.
We also stopped in at a lovely coffee shop did a little stitching and walked around the old station area of Haymarket.
As the quilt museum is closed on Mondays Rebecka organized a private tour of the quilt exhibits. Lois was wonderful and very informative. The exhibit of the 'Marseille White Corded Quilts' was on display. What an amazing collection! All hand stitched and corded with wonderful imagery in the background. www.quiltstudy.org The second exhibit was 'Nebraska Quilts and Quiltmakers'. These quilts were made by Nebraskan quilters or the quilts were brought to Nebraska by families who settled in the area between 1860 and 1900.
If you visiting Lincoln please take time to visit the museum. Every time I have visited there has been a different exhibit with the most outstanding quilts on display.
Once again my head is filled with more ideas than I can possibly have time to stitch.
Take care


  1. I was in the US in November and visited the Study Centre and loved it, we got to see the French quilts before the opening and wow......


  2. Sue, that first picture, is that fabric or embroidery type stitching, it's gorgeous.

  5. Sue,
    It was a pleasure to spend the day with you. Thank you again for coming to Lincoln! Can’t wait for the next time I can take a class from you!
