Study Quilts on Exhibit 

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.

The Quilt Study began in 2000 with chintz quilts and has continued biennially with crib quilts, two-color quilts, and pre-1840 bed-coverings.
