Quilt Genealogy

In the Winnipeg Free Press yesterday, there was a story about the Buhler Gallery off of the main lobby/food court of St. Boniface General Hospital, Winnipeg.

They have a new showing of a quilt display called Quilts: Past and Present.

The quilts are on loan from the Manitoba Crafts Museum and Library, and one of the exhibitors is Heather Lair, an acclaimed fabric artist from Gimli, Manitoba.

Lair says that "She has a piece of advice if you've got an heirloom quilt: Interview old-timers in your family who can recall details about its making, and keep the 'quilt genealogy'".
