Susana Allen Hunter, Quilting Genius

Today, I went to the Henry Ford Museum.

The Henry Ford Museum

It was the last day of their exhibit, Quilting Genius 2, The Improvisational Quilts of Susana Allen Hunter. Here's one of my favorites from the exhibit.

The exhibit also included items and photos from Susana's life. I especially liked the two hats that were included--her work hat and one she wore to church.

You can see more photos of quilts, detail of quilts and other items in the exhibit in my Flickr set Quilting Genius 2.
