the american folk art museum, located a rock’s skip throw from MoMA, offers free admission fridays after 5:30

it’s quite manageable in size, so back to back with MoMA’s Target sponsored free fridays (4:00–8:00 p.m) is a little something i like to call: beautiful.

don’t be fooled, though, the exhibit recycling & resourcefulness: quilts of the 1930s, is on display at the lincoln square branch.

i particularly like this quilt because it reminds me of Gee’s Bend quilts

and also of ian hundley’s quilts:

pattern inspired by topographical map of western europe

i would love to spend a summer in Amish Country learning serious quilting skills, but then i might miss the internet.<thanks ordnung><not> although . . . would i be exempt from taxes during that time?
