Colonial Williamsburg Joins MAQF

Stop by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation table located in the lobby of the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival. Learn about the two world-class Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg and their special exhibit, A Century of African-American Quilts.

This exhibit showcases eleven colorful and stunning quilts, half of which have never before been seen by the public. The quilts of

African Americans varied widely, depending on the date, location, community, the purpose for which the quilt was made, and the personal artistic vision of the quiltmaker. The bold designs and brilliant colors of the quilts featured in the exhibition speak to a longstanding cultural and artistic tradition within which the women designed and created their quilts. Although none of the quilts in the exhibit were made during the era of slavery in America, several of the quilters represented in the exhibit were born into slavery and others descended from enslaved families. Each quilt maker used the humble materials of fabric and thread to create a bedcover that was warm and practical as well as brilliant in color and artistry.
Quilt pictured  was pieced and appliqued by Dora Smith ( 1901).

Urban Rainbow at New Jersey Quiltfest

Quilt & Sewing Fest of New Jersey Special Exhibit
Urban Rainbow
by The Empire Quilters Guild

For 33 years, the Empire Quilters Guild has been home to a wide array of quilting trends and members in metropolitan NYC.  EQG offers quilters of all levels, styles, and methods a place to learn, to contribute, and to create.

“Urban Rainbow offers a taste of our show and tell. Without UrbanRainbowrestricting the method or style we asked members to use ROYGBIV, the acronym for all the colors in a rainbow: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green Blue, Indigo, Violet, any shade, tint, value, or hue. The quilting rainbow is thriving in and around urban NYC. We hope you enjoy it, and if you like what you see here….well, there’s lots more across the river!” Pictured: Spare Change by Betsy Vinegrad.
