“Throughout history, many women focused their artistic talents on producing handicrafts and household goods. Quilts offered a blank slate for creative expression,” a news release says. “The Putnam Museum’s presentation will allow viewers to dive into the history of the American quilt and see some of the amazing quilts in the museum’s collection.”
