Modern Quilt Exhibit in Texas

Modern Quilt Exhibit in Texas

The Texas Quilt Museum welcomes you to its Autumn exhibition from September 24-December 30 with dazzling modern quilts!

It’s in a historic 1890s building called La Grange that about 50 quilts will be displayed. They are the subject of two big themes: Flying High: For the Love of Birds and Picture Perfect: Quilts by Cynthia England.

Flying High: For the Love of Birds

This year, our feathered friends are the exhibition’s stars with 41 quilts in their effigy ! Texas Quilt Museum’s co-directors Karey Bresenhan and Nancy O’Bryant Puentes curated these bountiful patchworks in order to commemorate these key links in our ecosystems.

You’ll have the opportunity to discover 13 quilts of the brilliant designer Cynthia England, internationally recognized for her technique and unique style, the “picture piecing” : technique aiming to reproduce photographs into patchwork. The result is spectacular and will blow you away!
