Quilt Journeys: Pattern
January 30 – July 24, 2021
More often than not, a quilt tells a story. From Colonial quilts to the Abolitionist movement and from the Crazy Quilt era of the 19th century to today’s contemporary experimentation with materials redefining what a quilt can be, the quilt journey offers a rich history communicated through pattern, story, and collaboration. This exhibition explores pattern in 20th century quilts from the WFMA Permanent Collection.
