American Quilt Study Group: 2014

Study of Civil War Quilts, 1850-1865

This traveling exhibit features twenty-five quilts made by members of the American Quilt Study Group. Each year the group responds to a theme and each participant selects an exisiting antique quilt for research and inspiration. Sourced from family heirlooms and museum collections, the selected quilt must be recognizable from the period regardless of the techniques used. Each participant then determines their own construction methods based upon information gathered about the original quilt. The 2014 group chose quilts from the time leading up to and during the American Civil War. The quilts were displayed at the AQSG Seminar in Milwaukee, where three AQSG members selected the quilts for this traveling exhibition.
