The quilt here, Signifyin' by Barbara Pietila, is just one example of the rockin' work you'll find! The show is there from August 7 to September 30, 2010.

Hmmm, Kyra, a quilt I recognize!! How many times have I looked through Carolyn Mazloomi's 1998SPIRITS OF THE CLOTH and there sits Ms. Pietila's "Signifyin'"...
first quilt in the book!! If you
know Ms. Pietila and she is there, do let her know how much I like that picture of her quilt.
