“A little scrap for recollection’s sake”: Quilts from the Concord Museum

October 08, 2010 — March 27, 2011


Rarely exhibited, the quilts on view in this special exhibition ranged from doll size to full size, and included bold geometrics, traditional patchwork, signature quilts and crazy quilts, most dating from the second half of the nineteenth century. Also included in the exhibition were patterns, quilt tops, shams and sewing tools. Each quilt on exhibit had a story to tell about the creative makers, the communities they lived in, and the period of history in which they were working.
