Flower Show: Antique Quilts from the International Quilt Festival Collection
Beginning July 1, we'll have a brand new exhibit on display. Flower Show: Antique Quilts from the International Quilt Festival Collection will present 10 quilts dating from the 1850s to the 1940s.

These beautiful works showcase beautiful flower designs with impeccable hand-quilted details. Floral patterns were popularly used for quilts in the 19th and 20th centuries, especially 1840-1860. The majority of these quilts feature color schemes of blue, red, and green, with accent colors of orange, pink, and yellow.
