Quilts 1700-1945 - Queensland Art Gallery


Mum and I had a special girl's day out yesterday for her birthday and we took in the Quilts exhibit at the QueenslandArt Gallery. Mum had actually seen most of the exhibit 3 years ago at the V&A in London while visiting my brother. I think even if you aren't a quilter or a quilt fan there was still plenty to appreciate.


My favourite quilts were the hexagon ones -especially the one done by soldiers. (Images from the official program)


We followed the exhibition with an early lunch in the Gallery Cafe which was excellent value. We had this great platter with a glass of champers - all very yummy.


There was of course a spot of shopping in the pop up shop as well.

I have a quilt question for you. The kids have quilts that their grandmother hand made for them that I want to hang in their rooms. What's the best way to hang them? Install a rod?
