Perfecting the Past: Colonial Revival Quilts

Colonial Revival QuiltDuring the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, a movement known as the Colonial Revival swept across the United States. The movement, with its glorification of America's national past, affected everything from architecture and furniture styles to household items such as silver and textiles. Americans faced with the complexities of modern-day life embraced the idea of a simpler, nobler past. "Perfecting the Past: The Colonial Revival and Quilts" looks at the impact the movement has had on American quilts and quiltmakers. Quilts on display show how the movement affected pattern, color, and style choice, and the impact in both the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

This exhibition will be on display at the International Quilt Study Center & Museum from December 7, 2012 to September 1, 2013.
