Quirkology of Quilts opens this week

New exhibit displays warmth and whimsy

Although the weather may be too warm to add one to your bed, the Museum of the San Ramon Valley is removing quilts from their closet summer homes in a new exhibit.

Quirkology of Quilts will be on display from Thursday, Aug. 25 through Sunday, Sept. 25 and features several special events on Saturdays.

On Aug. 27, Sept. 3 and Sept. 17, visitors can watch members of Diablo Valley Quilters make the colorful and comfy creations. Alethea Ballard will discuss whimsical quilts at 10:30 a.m. on Sept. 10, followed by a discussion on wearable art on Sept. 24.

The museum is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. till 4 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. till 1 p.m. For more information on the exhibit, visit the museum website or call 837-3750

I look forward to seeing this exhibit.

Was there a call to artists sent out?

I ask because the preeminent quilt artist in the greater bay area, Karla Schreffler (Studio in Danville), is not part of this exhibit.

How is that possible?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
