Ken Burns Quilt Show.

Recently I had the privilege of attending a quilt show in Peoria IL. This was held at the Riverfront Museum along the Illinois River, a beautiful background.

Love what he says about quilts.

Here are some of the quilts from his personal collection. The video shown during the event shows how he lives with them as a part of his life on a daily basis. This was a beautiful display in a fabulous museum space.


The 2 close up show how the maker had to adapt. It still is hanging in a museum.

  1. Thank you for this. These quilts are utterly amazing. I loved the fact that the NRA didn’t stand for the National Rifle Association, but rather an FDR program I’d never heard of.
