Tuesday at the Table

Last week I shared about our visit to the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles and the vintage potholders we saw, just a portion of the exhibit called Tasty, too! Unfortunately the exhibit has ended, but between my two posts, you can see all of the "highlights [from] a few of the remarkable quilts from the 1999 exhibit and catalog Women of Taste, A Collaboration Celebrating Quilt Artists and Chefs (C&T Publishing)."
In the main hallway were the potholders, as well as these 4 food-themed quilts . . .
Alice Beasley's Bette's Diner
Miriam Nathan-Roberts' Cherries 3
Mary Mashuta's Mixed Greens

Cindy Cooksey's Cubism Meets Baltimore

"A complementary exhibit [was] the small scale 16” x 16” food related quilts created by artists responding to the Tasty! theme and challenge. Donated to the museum these quilts [were] available for sale to raise money for the museum’s programs." The small quilts were hung all around the large display room.
 Here are all the minis viewed just a little closer.

The list of contributing "Fiber Shots" artists was a long one . . .
All in all, our visit was short and sweet, a delightful marriage of two of my favorites, quilts and food. Good times.


  1. How fun! I love the coffee and doughnuts mini!

  2. I've been there! Thanks for sharing :)
    Did you see the knitting all over the place downtown? Door handles, parts of telephone poles...fun.
