Upcoming Exhibit

Piece by Piece: Geometric Quilts

Opens August of 2017

Beginning in March 2017, The Charleston Museum’s Textile Gallery will present a unique display of themed historic quilts from its extensive quilt collection. First on display will be Piece by Piece: Quilts Inspired by Nature. Part two of the presentation, Piece by Piece: Geometric Quilts, will open in August of 2017. Different shapes and piecing techniques have traditionally been mainstays of the quilting craft. From magnificent stars to traditional nine-patch, these quilts will also include clever hexagons of English paper-template piecing along with Log Cabins, Flying Geese, Chimney Sweeps and even a few Crazy Quilts. With their creative use of shapes, patterns and design, these eye-catching historic pieces represent true works of art that will appeal to both the quilter and non-quilter alike.
