Quilts at Civic Plaza

It's been a busy week!  One thing that was accomplished was putting up a new display at Bloomington Civic Plaza.  It's Quilts!
The display includes:
1930's Nursery Rhyme embroidered quilt
1885 Victorian Crazy Quilt
1920's Yo-Yo coverlet
Late 1800's Log Cabin Quilt, courthouse steps layout
Two wool lap quilts from the 1940's or so
Reproductions of two 1905 doll quilts
Reproduction of 1893 Pond Dakota Album Quilt
and a 1910 Singer sewing machine.

I was glad to see today that they are keeping the lights off in the cabinet to protect the quilts, even though the display cabinet has special conservator lights and glass.
