Stitch by Stitch: Quilts and Coverlets
Stitch by Stitch: Quilts and Coverlets from the Permanent Collection.
Friendship quilts, crazy quilts, and more! Get cozy with the Morris Museum’s expansive collection of quilts and coverlets, many exhibited for the first time. First established in pre-colonial America, quilts and coverlets have made houses feel like homes ever since. Learn the influence of European textiles on American quilting. See early examples of favorite quilts patterns, still popular today, or encounter unusual designs that fell from favor. Stitch by stitch, imagine the craft, artistry, and skill that contributed to this great American tradition.
