The New England Quilt Museum
After visiting Baltimore, New York City, and Boston, we headed a little north to go to the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, MA. They have a large collection of quilts that they display and they also host travelling exhibits.
When we were there they had an exhibition of Butterfly Quilts curated by the Texas Quilt Museum, which is on display here until July 10. It was interesting to see the combination of contemporary art quilts along with some vintage traditional quilts.
They don't allow published photos of the quilts, so if you want to see photos of quilts, you'll have to visit their website.
Lowell was a picturesque town with red brick buildings and brick streets. We had a lovely lunch before heading home.
