The same feeling comes over me every time I have a chance to visit a quilt Museum. I know I’m going to see quilts but there’s always something magical about it! Thanks to Carol, my good friend and retired teacher who believes that you never stop learning, a group of us went to spend a morning with Beth Donaldson and see some amazing quilts at the Michigan State University Museum in Lansing MI.
Betty so kindly reminded us that this Museum and Quilt Collection relies on donations and even the smallest contributions help. If you would like donate and help preserve quilting history, you can make a check out to: Michigan State University Museum, put the word “quilt” in the memo line and send it to:
Michigan Quilt Project
570 Red Cedar Road, #101C, Michigan State University
East Lansing, MI 48824
Beth will make sure it gets in the right account.
If you would like to see the “Stars” in the MSU Museum, contacting Beth Donaldson at email@example.com for more information. I highly recommend it! As we were walking out of the museum my little group was already thinking about our next visit to see 9 patch quilts.
Below are links to the 10 quilts that we viewed during our last visit with pictures and the details about each quilt.
Happy New Year!
