All Star Quilts: The John Wilmerding Collection
Jun 27 - Oct 26View Gallery
All Star Quilts features a unique collection of more than 30 star-themed quilts including Amish and Mennonite examples from Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
The quilts are executed in a variety of color combinations ranging from jewel tones to pastels on white as well as colored backgrounds, and share the exclusive use of solid, rather than printed fabric pieces. The collection includes three pairs of identical quilts, which is quite unusual. On view in the Diana and John Colgate Gallery.
