Southern Quilts: Celebrating Traditions, History, and Designs
Exhibit runs from Dec. 11 to March 9, 2021.
The American South has a rich quilting history, steeped in tradition and passed down through the generations. The glorious designs, colors and patterns are unique to this region of the United States. The quilts created here reflect the influence of multiple cultural traditions brought to the region over the last four centuries. The earliest patchwork quilts came from traditions in the British Isles. Unique designs and artistic interpretations emerged as German, Scots Irish and other European settlements converged in the American South. Each quiltmaker made her choices based on the styles, patterns, traditions, and fabrics available to her at that time.
