We visited Concord, MA on a cold but sunny day this week.
Snowbanks and icicles were among the wintry delights of Concord.
The excuse for our visit was the Quilts from the Concord Museum exhibit at the Concord Museum. The exhibit consisted of two rooms with quilts hanging on the walls. The quilts all tied into Concord history in one way or another.
For me, the two most memorable things were:
- The first crazy quilt I've ever seen that looked beautiful instead of like a mishmash.
- How modern some of the fabrics looked, even though they were part of quilts that were over 100 years old.
We had a great lunch afterward at the Colonial Inn.
I definitely want to return to Concord in the summer. There are lots of historic houses, including Louisa May Alcott's, Nathaniel Hawthorne's, Ralph Waldo Emerson's....plus the Minute Man National Historic Park.
