Check out the summer lineup of three exhibits, focusing on the "T" or Kimono shape, at the Texas Quilt Museum.

As a professional artist for over 25 years, Judith Content has been been drawn to the T-shapes found in Japanese Kimonos as well as antique bed quilts.  "I construct my quilts intuitively, using an array of hand-dyed silks, a contemporary approach to the traditional Japanese dye technique of arashi-shibori," she notes.  Her exhibit is called Intuitive Symmetry: Works on Silk by Judith Content.

Kimono Quilts and Kimonos features the works of a wide range of artists including Therese May, Yvonne Porcella, Sugar Rieck, Ans Schipper-Vermeiren, and Sarah Ann Smith. Another show, Antique Four-Poster Quilts, features antique bed quilts from the 1800s.  Their lack of corners allowed the quilt to easily fit around the bed's posts.
