American Decorative Arts Forum Lecture: "400 Years of Quilts, Styles, and Influences".

Tuesday, Nov 12, 2013 7:15p to 9:00p

Ms Baumgarten, curator at Colonial Williamsburg, discusses how a quilt is defined by its layered assemblage and stitching. Despite the relatively simple definition, quilts came in a wide variety of styles and constructions over the past 400 years. Each group that settled in our multi-ethnic culture expanded the definition of American quilting. Some immigrants chose to quilt in the styles of their newly adopted home, while others expressed the artistic impulses of their ethnic origins
