When I was in Florida between selling and buying houses my daughter told me she was "taking me to some museum or something." Later it was, "they have a bunch of quilts or something."
Graduation was Friday, so that left Saturday for a 25yo to entertain her mother. Off to the museum we tromped.
Oh. My. Goodness.
It wasn't just any museum, it was the Orlando Art Museum. I saw the vinyl banner flapping in the breeze yakking about the Gees Bend Quilts...oh, yeah, was going to miss that.
I'M HERE...IT'S T-I-M-E! I'm seriously going to see them, up close and FOR REAL!
It was awesome. It was humbling. I enjoyed seeing the quilts thru my daughter's eyes and opinions, and those of her gf. They crack me up. They went for the strong bold quilts, I went for the patterns and subtle styles. I had a blast, hope they weren't bored to tears! They certainly were good sports about it anyway. No "can we go now" requests.
Have to admit tho, the most fun was making our own little quilts with colored tape and construction paper. Thankfully, we were the only ones in the craft area.
Thanks Swany & Brandy, it was FUN! What a great surprise!
