Quilts on a Field Trip

NOTICE:  The exhibit has been extended through the month of March!!!  My quilts will be home after that time.  Oh! the stories they will have to tell about their stay.  :o))

Eight of my quilts have gone on a field trip to the UNC Health Sciences Library.  They were displayed there ALL of December and ALL of January and will hang there about half of February, too.  This means that their field trip is drawing to a close.

If YOU are in the area of UNC Chapel Hill, please stop by for a visit!

Why so late with the post??

Well, I really wanted to add pictures of the travelers.  However, the photos that I took right before the quilts left for UNC were taken on the camera and the camera hasn't been working with my new computer.  :o((

For more about the exhibit, please read the following notice which was prepared for the Durham Orange Quilters Guild newsletter.
