Quilts on display

Frugal + Fancy: Indiana Quilts

Feb. 12 – July 17, 2011

From the web site: "Frugal and fancy quilting traditions merged in the New World when the formal needlework tradition of the European elite met the more informal Scots-Irish tradition of scrap or strip quilts. 

Both styles became integral to American quilting. 

See quilts from the Indiana State Museum’s collection that reflects both aspects of this craft."
