Saturday June 25, 2011 found 25 SAQA members at Mingei Museum. We had a great time seeing Bold Expressions, African American Quilts from the Collection of Corrine Riley. This exhibit of more than fifty quilts contained materials that were available between 1910 and the 1970s. Fabrics included wool, cotton, flour sacks, old blue jeans and work clothes. This exhibit has it's own genre perhaps labeled Improvisational Tradition.

Thanks Mary for organizing this wonderful Mingei Quilt tour and networking opportunity with SAQA Members here in So Cal. The tour of the Fabric Free Fashions over at Visions Museum was also something special.
