Quilt Trail, May 8, 2017

New Albany, Mississippi, USA, May 3, 2017
Quilt Trail Public Art is an effort by the Union County Heritage Museum to preserve old quilt patterns by painting them on wood squares. The largest collection is at Pocket Park in New Albany, but other quilt art pieces can be found around New Albany and in surrounding towns.

I am thankful that I had the best mother-in-law that any one could wish for. She was a great blessing to me. If she were still alive, she could tell me the names of every one of these quilt patterns.

I love all the vibrant colors: the reds, blues, greens, and yellows!

This steel sculpture entitled "Swamp Flower" is by Louisiana artist Mia Kaplan.
