MAINLAND MORNING QUILT GUILD ANNUAL SHOW ON DISPLAY AT GALVESTON HISTORICAL FOUNDATION’S 1861 U.S. CUSTOM HOUSE
Galveston Island, Texas – Quilts from Texas City’s Mainland Morning Quilt Guild are now on display at Galveston Historical Foundation’s U.S. Custom House, 2nd Floor, 502 20th Street. The new collection can be viewed Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is closed on holidays.
The exhibit features an exceptional collection of quilts, including “Chrysalis” by Marcia Henry. Henry, a professional long-arm quilter, pieced the top as part of a block-of-the-month program at a local quilt shop, and showcased her quilting skills with many different designs.
Also on display is the quilt that represented Galveston County in the 2011 Houston Livestock Show, taking second place. Available for sale, “Cactus Round-up” features silhouettes of cowboy figures made from ultra suede placed on a sunset-colored background. It features original designs by Jan Robinson and was made by Peggy Mote, Ruth Marquez-Silliman, Jan Robinson and Sharon Mitchner. It was quilted by Patsy Franco.
There are other quilts with cowboy boots, lone star designs, and cactus scenes—even a set of three tiny quilts using the handprints and footprints of Henry’s grandbaby in the design.
