Who knew Ken Burns collected quilts? He commented that he makes films for others, he collects quilts for himself. He has an exhibit at the International Quilt Study Center and Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska, through May 5.
Here's a quick tour through some of his quilts.
And here's a slightly longer 5-minute video with commentary by Burns.
For more youtube videos of Ken Burns and his quilts on exhibit in Lincoln, look here. In one of the videos (maybe one of the above) it shows that he stores many of his quilts by hanging them with several front to back in the same place. I thought that was interesting.
I'm not an avid collector of antique quilts but when I find one I love and the price is right, it comes home with me. I need to take some photos and share the ones I have.
