Karen,

While I didn't get to see the exhibit, I did call AFA last April for a catalog and was told they weren't doing one. The museum gift shop does have a wonderful book entitled _Women's Painted Furniture, 1790-1830: American Schoolgirl Art_ by Betsy Krieg Salm (of course, Amazon's price is better). They've also extended the exhibit until the 19th of September.

Information on some of the items shown can be seen by clicking on the pictures at this link. http://www.folkartmuseum.org/womenonly Also, the fall day symposium in Nov. this year will feature quilts.

Dear QHL List:

While we mourn the passing of Bonnie Leman, founding editor of Quilters Newsletter Magazine and a pioneer of the quilting revival, it's worthwhi le to put her career and gift in perspective. Whether you knew her or not, you may appreciate hearing Bonnie talk about her work in her own words. Click on this link, http://www.allianceforamericanquilts.org/treasures/main.php?id=3D5-16-7  to see the detailed online portrait of Bonnie that is part of the Quilt Treasures project run jointly by the Alliance for American Quilts, Michigan State University Museum and MATRIX: Center for Humane Arts, Letters and Social Sciences Online at MSU. Thanks once again to those who funded Bonnie's portrait, especially Jinny Beyer and Lake Mills Studios. Bonnie Leman's legacy will continue, and not just in the form of her magazine. She took quilts seriously, and forced others to take a deeper look.

For those of you in the Washington, DC area the next 2 weekends, antique quilt hunting will be available at 2 venues. This Sunday is the Sully Plantation Quilt Show in Chantilly, VA. For the first time in many years I am not able to particpate, but the sight of all those antique quilts, fabrics, notions and related items fluttering in the morning light gets me quite excited. Good food, historic house tour and quilt appraisals are also available. Treasures are always discovered at Sully!

Next weekend, Sept. 18 & 19 is the DC Big Flea, also in Chantilly, VA. Hundreds of antique and collectible dealers, many with quilts, needlework and textiles. $8 admission for 2 days, with Sat hours 9-6 and Sunday 11-5.

Check out the IBOL guy! He is a soldier who gathers Bundles of Love from all over America and ships it to Iraq to help the families there. As he says, Iraqi's need a chance, not charity.

Basically, donors send a flat-rate box of sewing / quilting / knitting supplies, all bundled up to a military address in Iraq. (This is considered a US address, so special discounted mailing rates apply.) Once it's there, someone will open the box, = pull out the fully-contained bundle, and hand it off (with others) for dist= ribution in the Salah ad Din area. That's where the IBOL name comes from - = Iraqi Bundles of Love.The idea is to put sewing and quilting and knit= ting supplies into the hands of two types of recipients: locals who despera= tely need such things, and local sewing co-ops and other small businesses who have received grants or loans (typically to purchase sewing machines, re= nt space, etc). This is his second year doing this. For more information on IBOL II, visit his website http://ibol.wordpress.com/2010/08/24/ib= ol-ii/

If you would like to read about IBOL I and the effect it had on him and the donors, you can read his essay at http://www.artlaflamme.com/blog/KMZ/IBOL_Book1.pdf. It's actually quite interesting.

I did bundles of love the first round. Green is a favorite color because it is considered the color of Islam, as it is one of the colors of heaven. White is for death. I sent lots of green and got a nice note saying how I made so many women happy. Hope this helps. I'm gathering my fabric to send again.

Subject: Antique Quilt Exhibit in New Jersey From: Barb Garrett <bgarrett421comcast.net> Date: Sun, 12 Sep 2010 17:03:28 -0400 X-Message-Number: 2

Good Afternoon All -

Thanks to this great list, and the wonderful members who take the time to advertise "showings" of antique quilts in their areas, I was able to visit Somers Point, NJ, today to view quilts from the collection of the Atlantic Heritage Center. It is so important that we network for these small historical societies -- they have no budget for advertising outside their immediate town. And many of us will travel an hour or 2 (or 3) to see outstanding quilts. And these were outstanding.

This wonderful exhibit was guest curated by Merry May and includes quilts from the early 1880s through the 1970s (2 Bicentennial quilts). Numerous of the pre 1860 quilts are New Jersey signature quilts, all with great fabrics to study. Some nice turkey reds. And a fair number of that "on point with sashing" set so common in New Jersey.

The flyer I picked up there says the exhibit is on until October 10, 2010, and they are open Wednesday through Saturday, 10 am to 3:30 pm Location - 907 Shore Rd, Somers Point, NJ With a nice parking lot behind the building. And a nice catalog for sale.

Website is www.atlanticheritagecenternj.org and there is a wonderful photo exhibit of the quilts at http://gallery.me.com/merryquilts/100100

Worth the visit if you are close.
