A puzzling piece of sewing.

When we were in York on our visit to the UK I went to the York Quilt Museum to see a Kaffe Fassett exhibition.  Unfortunately the day I went to see the exhibition the museum was closed to change over the exhibition to a new one.  I was really disappointed and decided that I would make the trip to the museum the following week to view the new exhibition.

The exhibition I saw was ultra modern and not really to my liking although I could appreciate the amount of work that had gone into the quilts which were really pieces of artwork rather than quilts.

While I was at the museum I visited the shop that comes with all tourist attractions and I was able to purchase something to remind me of my trip to the museum.

I bought a kit for making puzzling blocks.  The kit was really just some pieces of cut foam and directions on how to piece the fabric together to make the blocks.  It was lightweight and took up very little room in my luggage.  I had some Kaffe Fassett material scraps at home so I was able to link the blocks to my missed exhibition. 🙂

The blocks are all attached at some point and you just manipulate them to make the different rectangles and cubes.  Sort of like Rubic’s Cube.

On visiting the Quilt museum website it was disappointing to find this.Screen shot 2015-12-17 at 3.23.36 PMHere is the link to the decision.

    It’s so sad. I guess the economy is bad everywhere.

  2. That’s a shame about the museum closing, but nice that you got the chance to visit and take home a memento.
