Masterworks and More NYC

Many of you will recognize this block. I was thrilled to see the Civil War Bride's quilt at the American Folk Art Museum exhibit.
Another beautiful applique quilt.
I'm a sucker for a folksy eagle. Love the hand with the fingernails!

Bev (no blog) from Australia set up a get together at the Russian Tea House on Friday night. There were 20 of us and what a fun time we had. Thank you Bev!!! Pictured above are the ones with blogs.
Seated: Jan and Vicki from What A Load A Scrap
l-r Humble quilts, Jo Morton, (lets leave her a message that she needs to update her blog more often)
Mary Koval, (just started blogging about 2 weeks ago) Sue from I Sew Quilts, Linda from Quilts in the Barn 
and Diane from Quilty Pleasures (quiltmaker magazine)
Sue from UK and myself. I was so looking forward to meeting this beautiful woman. She has a lovely spirit.
I did attend the Empire Guild quilt show. It was packed and felt really crowded. My favorite display was the President's challenge "Landmarks of NY".  This one caught my eye and didn't have anyone standing in front of it! LOL It was made by Ruby Horansky.

  6. How wonderful to see all those antique quilts! Do you remember what the outline of the eagle is? I can't tell if it's the applique stitching or something else.

  16. oh what wonderful memories you will always have from this trip
    I am just so sorry our schedules didn't work out
    to meet up. I loved that appliqué quilt too, the cherry tree just makes me smile everytime I look at it!
    Seeing those quilts in the American Folk ARt Musuem will always be a treasure to me
    the sunflower quilt was the oldest quilt on display right?
    The Bride quilt was incredible, different then I expected though...

  18. I spent my weekend in NYC with a non-quilting friend--while it was great fun, as part of our negotiation (and somewhat controlling host who also had his own ideas about how she/we would spend our time), I didn't get to the Folk Art Museum and really regretted it--I did by the book at the gift shop at the Armory). I really wanted to see the original Civil War Bride's quilt, sans groom.

    On Friday afternoon, I heard some ladies talking about dinner at the Russian Tea Room and inviting others to join them. Had I been on my own, I might have joined the conversation ... and met you ;-)
