I have always wanted to go to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, but never more than right now. Just opened, Quilts 1700 to 2010 is the V&A’s first exhibit (ever!) of British quilts from 1700 to the present day. The “present day” stuff doesn’t excite me much, but the “1700″ on part makes me weak in the knees. To make matters worse, the museum I work for (New England Quilt Museum) is sponsoring a trip to the exhibit in April! Not that I could afford to go anyway, but I’ve actually been designated as the person to stay home, mind the store and be responsible. Sucks to be Cinderella.
Meanwhile, I’ll have to content myself with reading the Curator’s Blog and playing around on the Virtual Gallery web pages. PS – somebody on that tour better bring home some fat quarter trip treats or there will be one peevish staff member lurking about in the galleries.
