National Park Centennial Quilts

Last month Matt and I took a fabulous trip to the island Hawaii. For the first part of the trip we stayed at Volcanos National Park in the historic Volcano House Lodge. What a stunning place with a breathtaking view!

Our timing was great because the Centennial Quilts, celebrating 100 years of the National Park Service, were also spending that month on display at the lodge.

These thirteen art quilts were created by a Fiber Works, a group of textile artists in the Lincoln-Omaha, NE area. There was some really beautiful work in these quilts. We especially liked the one representing Volcanos.
