Best Places to See Quilts

And right in my own backyard is the La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum, La Conner Washington. The mission of the Museum is to collect, preserve, and exhibit local, national, and international quilts and textiles; to provide an educational experience; and to preserve the historic Gaches Mansion.This museum is a 'must see' for quilters The Gracies Mansion is a beautiful restored Victorian with furniture from the era....enhanced by beautiful old quilts...& modern works of fibre artists. Knowledgeable/friendly staff. Great gift shop!

The Art Quilt Gallery NYC is focused on a single art form: quilts, whose  aesthetic range, creative spirit, execution, and sheer beauty make this a compelling art, yet one that is rarely displayed in New York.  I think you will be impressed with the range and quality of work.  Opened on April 5, 2011, The Art Quilt Gallery NYC features the best quilts from around the world.
