“Tillie’s Story” Quilts on Exhibit

Tornado

The sixteen small (12″ X 12″) quilted illustrations of my Mother’s life growing up in a Kansas Mennnonite community in the early 1900s will be on display at the Albuquerque, New Mexico Mennonite Church from Feb. 14th through April 10, 2016.

The one shown here pictures the aftermath of a tornado that came through Buhler, Kansas while my Mother was teaching in the one room Lakeside School.  The tornado moved the school off its foundation but no one was hurt.  On the blog pull down the Tillie’s Story menu to see the entire story on PDF or PowerPoint.

The exact address of the Church where the quilts will be on exhibit is:

Albuquerque  Mennonite  Church
1300 Girard Blvd. NE
Albuquerque ,  NM 87106
Exhibit to be shown in the Higher Ground /Art Cafe

About QuiltToonist

I'm a news junkie and have opinions about everything! I consider myself a folk artist because I have no formal art training and use the sewing skills I learned many moons ago to accomplish the fiber art I seem to have to express.
