America in Cloth
Quilts as Canvas

Quilts have proved to be the perfect canvas for self expression. They serve as a new way of seeing: imagining the possibilities contained in a bolt of fabric, exploring new definitions for what a quilt can be. From the Amish quilts of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania with their large fields of color to the contemporary work of such artists as Nancy Crow and Michael James, quiltmakers have continually pushed the boundaries of this medium as they explore new directions for this American craft.
