This major exhibition explores the history, culture, and craft of quilt-making in Connecticut. About 30 stunning selections from the CMCH’s approximately 150 quilts, ranging from the last quarter of the eighteenth century to the present day, will be displayed alongside costumes, photographs, and artifacts that illustrate the stories behind Connecticut quilters and quilting. The exhibit was guest-curated by Lynne Zacek Bassett, an award-winning freelance curator specializing in historic costume and textiles.
