While I was at my retreat over the weekend at Deep Woods Retreat, near Smithville, I took the opportunity to visit the Texas Quilt Museum. The Texas Quilt Museum is located in LaGrange, Texas and is only about 20 minutes from the retreat.
Although I was a little disappointed with the Museum, it still was nice and I was glad I went. Maybe I was disappointed because I'm not an "artsy fartsy" type girl and most of the time I really don't like "artsy" quilts. Most of the quilts were that type. Some were interesting and some were just plain bizarre. There was a small display of some "civil war reproduction" era quilts and I really enjoyed those. Another disappointment was there are no photos allowed. While I probably knew that deep down, I still wanted to document my trip.
This is the only documentation I could take.... The Flower Garden just outside the Museum. It was very lovely and relaxing.
There was also a wonderful quilt and yarn shop next door to the Museum and of course I did my fair share to contribute to the economy of LaGrange.
