Broderie de Marseille Exhibit in Lincoln, NE

I have just got back from the Symposium, two days of bliss learning more about whitework quilts.  I have been waiting to visit the exhibition for a long time, as I really wanted to see the boutis in Kathryn Berenson's collection.  I had not appreciated how much more would be presented at the Symposium, and thoroughly enjoyed the presentations. 
I was a little disappointed that the rest of the museum's collection are not on permanent display;  they are catalogued online and you can look at them that way.  I hope that sometime in the future there will be more space for more quilts to be displayed.













I mostly took photos of elements of the boutis which interested me the most, so here is a small sample of them.
