Something Pertaining to God: Quilts by Rosie Lee Tompkins in DC

I love being in the Washington, D.C. area with all these museums! From now until September 21, 2008, one can see the AMAZING creations of Rosie Lee Tompkins at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. There is an exhibit catalog - but the photos do not do justice if you can see the actual quilts in person. There are two pieces that have velvet - and its amazing to see the rich fibers in person - and think that this Sistah Quilter had such an imagination and close relationship with God to create these quilts and patchwork artworks. Ms. Tompkins passed away in 2006. About this exhibit - It's A Must See!
