Red and Green exhibit: Inspired by 19th Century red and green quilts, 24 quilts made by members of The American Quilt Study Group. Also, a display of the Museum's red and green quilts.
From AQSG: “The purpose of the Quilt Study is for members to replicate, either exactly, or as an interpretation, a quilt of a particular style or period. In this way, members can learn from the textile the history, techniques, and perhaps something of the person who made the original.”
I’m sure they learned how patient the quilters were, how exacting the work is. My first glance at the exhibit: I thought they were small-sized antique quilts, and I was shocked that people were taking pictures of them, and the docents were not stopping them. That's how good they were.
