Quilt Exhibition

There are varying accounts of the origins of the art of quilting including examples dating back to the early Egyptians and the Crusaders who are thought to have used the technique to decorate capes and cloaks.

In more recent times, quilts were sewn to provide warmth and to cover doors and windows to keep out the cold.  They were functional and made from items that were readily available including old clothing that could be cut up and patched together. Based on these original techniques, this exhibition celebrates the artist's imagination in using quilting to create beautiful adaptations of family and local stories and events.  They are sumptuous and complex works of art.
