There were only 4 homes out of the seven historic buildings that were open to the public during the exhibition in 2008 at Houston. The previous quilts shown on an earlier post were housed in larger genteel homes. However, the real treasures appeared when I went into The Yates House. It was built in the 1870s by a recently emancipated slave for his family. Here's some of what it contained:
A Grandmother's garden with an allover Baptist Fan quilting pattern.
Hope you liked the show.
