    This was part of a small exhibit in the round barn (pictured here) of the excellent Shelburne Museum in Vermont focusing on quilts which had been made by folks coping with memory loss in one way or another. The quilts themselves were diverse and colorful, no Gees Bend classics but I thought the concept was really interesting. There was also a hands on kids thing where you could make a wish on a piece of colored paper, roll it up and stick it into a wall that had pigeonholes, so that the papers themselves would form a sort of quilt.

    Part of my summer 2010 whirlwind east coast antiques tour.
