Linda Hunter Lecture:

LS-4: Quilts Past and Present - Saturday, June 5, 2021, 2:30 PM, $10

This lecture includes a variety of quilts, both antique and contemporary, which will act as the vehicle for this journey through the history of our country. Included in the lecture are more than 25 quilts and quilt pieces which help to illustrate historical facts, names of quilt patterns, patchwork and appliqué designs. Quilts and fabrics made over 150 years ago and as recently as yesterday will be shown. For example: Along with several patchwork and appliqué quilts, enjoy a Crazy Quilt, Redwork and embroidered quilts, and a Mariner’s Compass quilt block made in 1840. Compare this with a Mariner’s Compass quilt made in the 1980’s. View a fabric made expressly for President Eisenhower, quilts with fabric from the 1892 Columbian Exposition and the 1933 World’s Fair. Learn what is meant by “madder,” “T” quilt blocks, feed sack fabric - by viewing examples of each. View quilts that Linda made to remember Y2K and the 9-11 disaster.
