Log Cabins in Alsace

What a privilege to attend the European Patchwork Meeting and share Viewpoints 9 with Europe!  The exhibits were filled with new, exciting, though-provoking, inspiring exhibitions from Europe and beyond - - but, also, included some beautiful examples of traditional Log Cabin quilts from the International Quilt Study Center and Museum collection in Lincoln, Nebraska.  Some food for thought in our current challenge….

From the EPM program:

Coordinator: « Les Editions de Saxe » in partnership with the IQSC&M/Quilt House, Lincoln, NE (USA)
First published in 1995, « Editions de Saxe's » magazine « Magic Patch » has always been in close relation with and promoting contemporary and traditional artists.
As for International Quilt Study Center and Museum renamed a little while ago Quilt House, it regularly exhibits some of its numerous collections, choosing mostly historic themes.
These very instructive exhibitions give us the opportunity to better understand the American quilt history.
Thanks to the partnership between these two institutions, the EPM will be able to present a wonderful and meaningful exhibition.
