Plant Fabric! Nurture Color! Harvest Quilts!
July 30 to September 19
Ice House Cultural Center
Indpendence &Mercer Streets, just off 522
Open 11 AM to 5 PM
Quilts are simply three layers of cloth.
But put together the total of these three layers, serves many different purposes.
"It can preserve memories, comfort the healing, tell stories and can, for radicals, 'challenge ideas' " says curator, Abby Chapple. "In addition to being beautiful or spectacular, traditional or contemporary, made up of little boxes or abstract shapes they can cover the entire spectrum of every minute
of our birth to death existence."
Plan on coming to the show and enjoying a vast array of quilts,small and large.
You should also plan on visiting our unique boutique filled with quilted items made by guild members.
This boutique will continue until October 10th.
The Ice House is the perfect venue for this show at this time just as it was last year. The venue is a renovated vintage storage building and it is huge. This means there is plenty of room for the display of quilts and wide aisles, many hallways for visitors to keep 6-feet apart. Masks are required.
Shown here are a few of the quilts that will be in the show.
