Nine different quilts are shown on this homey cube ranging in style from pieced to applique to plate printed fabrics from the 1800's and even include a rare wholecloth quilt from the 1700's.
Representing a typically American decorative art, quilts are a form of social female pastime and even cottage industry which has had periods of popularity from colonial days through to the modern era.
Varying in subject and style, the quilts tell their own story of American women and Americana, all detailed and explained on the color storycard. Includes matching gift box. Produced in collaboration with Winterthur Museum.
