Vintage dress and quilt

This is a picture from December (today? not a CHANCE of taking any photos today, work's been unstinting and now my brain is almost too tired to think) taken at the Dubbo Museum.

Just love that quilt. I'd be guessing it's from old clothes, but the quilter's been so clever with her layout of the scraps, and it has wonderful rhythm and harmony, an almost-checkerboard about it. After a busy day, this image has a soothing serenity. Even from what may seem to be chaos, patterns can be formed and harmony achieved.
