I will tell you about the exhibition first, even though it was in the second week of the trip. Quilts 1700-2010 was an amazing collection of quilts with stories attached to their making or histories. No photos were allowed but the book was an excellent record of the exhibition. Some quilts were simple home quilts, some custom made, some made to celebrate an event or occasion. A couple had the most amazingly detailed workmanship and are as significant to history as any "artwork". The audio guide was a good purchase as the low lighting and barriers prevented close inspection of the quilts at times and they could be viewed on the iTouch (iPod) zooming in on any details as desired. I wasn't taken with some of the modern quilts displayed but they were a reasonable cross section I suppose. One about civilian vs. military deaths in Iraq wars really caught my attention, however.
Australia's Rajah Quilt was even there and I hadn't managed to see it here in Australia as it's rarely on display.
