Album/sampler quilt, c. 1860-70, Auburn IL

Birds in Air by Salome Thorpe, c. 1885, Westport CT

Next time you find yourself in lovely Lincoln, NE be sure to check out the tremendous textiles at the International Quilt Study Center & Museum, featuring the world's largest publicly held collection of quilts from more than 20 countries. Such an inspiring array of true craft skill, history, tradition, and experimentation.

And, next time you find yourself near a pasture, make a four-hoofed friend! Special thanks to Sailor–such a handsome Morgan you are–and especially thanks to cousin Kate.
