Charleston Museum, Charleston SC

Album quilt
Ray and I had the opportunity to see the Civil War Textiles exhibit at the Charleston Museum. I loved it! It didn't have a lot of quilts, but there were several. There were woven coverlets, a whole cloth quilt, a chintz applique quilt and an English paper piecing top and a beautiful Star of Bethlehem quilt.

There was lots of women's clothing and under clothing and children's clothes along with several Civil war uniforms.
We spent a couple of hours and had a great time. if you happen to be near Charleston before the end of September try to see the exhibit.
