A Trip to Stella Rubin's Showroom

Stella and a Mathematical Star, about 1830-1850.

When the DAR Museum was holding their symposium Eye on Elegance last month Stella Rubin added to the attractions by inviting us to her quilt showroom in her home in Maryland.

The showroom is piled with quilts.

A child's quilt dated 1885

With several on the walls

We folded and unfolded. Here's Jill with a medallion crib quilt
from the early 19th-century.

Kim Ivey is sainted with a halo cast by another giant star quilt behind her head.

The quilts are in mint condition.

Stella has one or two or six of everything.

She invited us out in four groups.

Uh-oh, here comes the next round of quilt fans. We had to go.
Thanks, Stella!

Lucky you, I have seen her quilts online and I can only imagine what a treat, to see them in person.
