Quilts: Practical Pieces

Quilts: Practical Pieces

April 21, 2018 – August 25, 2018

The story of New England quilts—from the province of colonial elites to common household items to treasured museum pieces—is tied to international trade, industrial development, shifting cultural values, and changing tastes. New England quilters today replicate designs from the past or use the traditional form as a starting point for their own artistic expression. The exhibit highlights quilts from the collection as well as loaned pieces that show a new direction for quilting in the age of technology.
