Bonus Segment

Artists have used the medium of textile in a myriad of ways: painting and printing directly on the cloth, fabric collage and portraiture, dyeing plain muslin to create new textures on the fabric, incorporating embellishment and embroidery.

A sampler of these techniques is showcased in the additional segment of "A Century of Quilts: America in Cloth" home video.
