The Indianapolis Modern Quilt Guild met late last month at the Indiana State Museum to see the Frugal & Fancy quilt exhibit. Exciting to see what previous Indiana quilters did many years ago. Little did we know that a Yo-Yo contest was going to be taking place. Not fabric yo-yos that sewists create, but real Yo-Yos. Did you know they had competitions? We were shocked. Here is some of the action from the day.
Rachael was tempted to buy the string to see what she could create.
Off to the exhibit we went. The best part of the exhibit was that they were not perfect. Triangles were not lined up and corners were off. It was refreshing to see quilts from 100 years ago that could still be considered modern. Solids and wonky log cabins were pointed out by all of us.
This was a great exhibit. We had a really nice time having lunch after out on the deck. We were watching people run on the canal, saw a quinceanera, and don’t forget the Yo-Yos.
