WOW: On The Road

WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays  

I'm currently on the road
'Where to?'  
 
To Brisbane, to see the V&A Quilt Exhibition
1700-1945
Exploring over 200 years of British quilt making
Exhibition organised by the Victoria & Albert Museum, London
 
I wasn't going to go, Brisbane is far away and it's a big chunk of time to lose, but since starting Love Entwined I feel compelled to see what I can of the era's quilts so that I can visualise amongst real quilts of the era what I think I saw when I spent so much time studying the original. I just had to find the time and go. I need to see these quilts myself, and most importantly, their authentic fabrics with my own eyes and this exhibition (which baffles me) isn't coming to Melbourne!
 

Since I launched Love Entwined, it's interesting how much Georgian I keep coming across. Like this hotel room, selected randomly as we drove. Of course, its the "Georgian Suite!" I think the only Georgian thing about it is the inspired green wall here.
 
 
Can't wait to see this exhibit and let you know what I think, fabric wise.
 WOW is extra early today as I will be on the road and out of wifi range.
 
What's Your WOW ?

  1. I think I have all my fabrics now for making Love Entwined - but one never knows. I got my package of Japanese Taupes yesterday to add to the ones I already have.
    Love the quilt that you show at the top of your post.
