Hospital Sketches Exhibit Opens Today


Meliss Swanson, Hospital Sketches
I bet we could have hung 50 versions of our 2019 Block of the Month
Hospital Sketches at the show opening today at the New England Quilt Museum.
But some like Meliss's had other dates scheduled.

The main problem is there was only room in the gallery for 15.
So I couldn't fit all 50 in.
See more here:

Denise Fowler Panter, wool applique

And some were not finished in time

Heidi Kapszukiewicz

Bettina Havig is hand quilting....

Janet Olmstead

Lorraine Hofmann

Trudi Wessink

Vicki Wendel
Some substituted their own blocks.

Seven Sisters Quilting

Pam Manning
Some used blocks from other projects ---Pam used
both Cassandra's Circle and Hospital Sketches blocks.

It's certainly rewarding to see how many of you stitched the pattern and what a fascinating variety of individual looks you achieved.
I hope you can get to Lowell, Massachusetts to see the show between now and October 1st.

Maybe I need to rent the armory in New York City to show them
all in five years...

So many beautiful quilts! The variety is just amazing. Wouldn’t it be great to see them all together!

Denniele said...

Maybe a display of all your recent BOM. What a display that would be!

Beautiful! Wonderful work and they are all great. My favorite is the one with the red background.

I am honored to be one of the makers of this wonderful quilt, whose version is highlighted in this post.

Is there any way you can change the spelling of my surname to Hofmann?

Barbara, these are so beautiful! It’s such fun to see the wide variety of creativity with your gorgeous BOMs! Thanks for including my take on it (even if I’m not quite finished!). :)
