New Quilts from an Old Favorite: Nine Patch

New Quilts from an Old Favorite 2015: Nine Patch

At the Shafer Gallery November 13-December 13

Nearly everyone remembers sleeping under a quilt made by their mother or grandmother, and many of those quilts were made from time-honored traditional quilt designs. Today’s quiltmakers were challenged by the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky to create original quilts based on the classic Nine Patch block pattern. The Shafer Gallery is delighted to present “New Quilts from an Old Favorite 2015: Nine Patch,” an exhibit of the 18 finalist and winning quilts by quiltmakers who responded to this challenge. Quilters modified Nine Patch block designs in imaginative ways, providing a wonderful look at the skills, techniques and creativity of today's quiltmakers.These are not your grandmother’s quilts!
