Masterpiece Quilts at Latimer Quilt and Textile Center

My new exhibit, "Masterpiece Quilts, Modernism in American Patchwork, 1810-1970" is now open at Latimer Quilt and Textile Center in Tillamook, Oregon. The exhibit runs through April, and takes a look at how modernism was part of the visual language of patchwork quiltmaking throughout the ages. These marvelous pieced quilts are among my all-time favorites, and I think they are relevant to the quiltmakers of today.

An open house is planned as part of Latimer's Spring Tea event Sunday, March 9th, from noon to 4pm. For more information, click here. Here are a few of the quilts in the exhibit. Enjoy!
