The study into quilt history is a rapidly growing area of research in American history: the important role women played in our history; domestic life in the 18th-20 centuries; development of the textile industry in the Asia, India, Europe and America; the purpose for making quilts; their pattern and style development over time; current reproduction fabrics; and last but not least, dating a quilt or a single piece of fabric by its dyes and the method used to print it.See some of the Challenge Mini Art Quilts An expanded BOUTIQUE at the Quilt Show was a bit hit.If you've been to our Boutique in the past, you'll know that a variety of wonderful handmade items are displayed for sale: small art quilts, jewelry, scarves, aprons, knitted and crocheted pieces, handmade journals, and much more!
