“One of the things that's so important and I really want people
to understand is that what these quiltmakers are doing is absolutely no
different than what your great-grandmother did. Great-grandmother took
available materials and techniques, and she used those to tell a story, to
tell the viewer something about the world in which she lived, about something
that was important to her, that's what these artists are doing.”
The Art of Quilting is a journey of color and inspiration,
a visual feast of imagination and expression. With highlights from Quilt National,
Art Quilts Philadelphia and profiles of the Chicago School of Fusing members,
The Art of Quilting allows viewers to discover how the boundaries of traditional
American quiltmaking have expanded.
The Art of Quilting is made possible
by the Alberta Kimball Foundation and by contributions to PBS stations from
viewers like you.
