Piece by Piece: A Brief History of Quilts
March 31, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm$10 – $20.
Join us for an evening with Maggi Gordon – quilt collector, quiltmaker, and author of more than fifteen books about quilting – whose research has given her fascinating insights into the history of quilts. Many of the skills and techniques involved in making quilts as we know them come from cultures ancient and modern, and from around the world. Armed with pieces from her wide-ranging collection, Gordon will discuss how quilts migrated from clothing and wall coverings onto beds, and how they came to spell warmth and comfort to generations of people.
Maggi is the author of numerous books on the history and technique of quilt making, and recently coauthored Red and White Quilts: Infinite Variety, a catalog of over 650 quilts (Skira/Rizzoli in association with American Folk Art Museum, 2015). She is the guest curator of Crossing the Atlantic Quilt by Quilt.
