Unfolding Stories: Culture and Tradition in American Quilts * 24 Sept - 31 Dec 2011 * Fenimore Art Museum, New York

Organized by renowned quilt scholar Jacqueline M. Atkins, the Fenimore Art Museum for the first time in over 10 years will display selections from its large collection of quilts. The exhibition will address themes of diversity, ethnicity and culture. Also included are the three award-winning quilts from the 2010 New York State of Mind Quilt Show. The Quilt pictured above comes with no further details in the press handout - but I personally think it is one of those quilts you need to see before you die - it is magnificent.

  1. Wow - that is a fabulous quilt! Being primarily a quilter and playing in cross-stitch, I can appreciate the work and talent in this work.
    Thanks for showing it to us.
    Regards,
