This is  a detail of one of the vintage quilts I will be displaying at the exhibition.
These old quilt tops, put away and forgotten, have been restored and completed by adding backing and wadding, and creatively quilted.
They provide a fascinating history of fabrics and techniques of quilting from the late 1800s to the 1950s.
