Quilts: The Next Layer

Rotation #1 on view through April 8!

Pieced and appliquéd cotton, silk and wool quilts and quilt tops represent strong 19th-century needlework traditions among local women. This exhibit of two dozen quilts delights the eye and inspires quilters and quilt enthusiasts.  CCHS acquired these quilts since 2003, including one attributed to Rebecca Lukens, and most have never been exhibited before.  

For more information or to schedule a group tour, contact Ellen Endslow at eendslow@chestercohistorical.org or 610-692-4800 x257.

And don’t miss the May 13 Quilt Turning!

This day-long program is a rare opportunity to go behind the scenes to study CCHS quilts up close with quilt enthusiasts from around the country.  Registration is required.  Space is limited to 30.
