I had a fabulous time with family last weekend and managed to get a bit of my Christmas shopping done as well. It was very cold (i.e. sub-zero) during much of my stay in Bismarck. However we still managed an outing to the newly renovated Heritage Center. If you ever make it to Bismarck, it is definitely worth a visit.
There were a couple of quilt related items I thought I would share.
This sewing machine was date 1870-1879. It was given to Ingebjurg Arnason shortly after she immigrated from Iceland in 1878. She used this machine to do the family sewing for her two sons and 11 daughters in Pembina Co. We definitely have it much easier today.
The following photos were from an interactive display on designing your own quilt block or your own bagpipe.
