The history books tell us that the “craft” of quilting was rediscovered in the tumultuous 1960s. As the mainstream art world expanded its definition of what materials and forms could be considered art, artists embraced the quilt format as a legitimate means of creative expression. This was the birth of a new and exciting art form.
For more than 50 years, the art quilt movement has been breaking new ground. Today, thousands of artists and collectors around the world are passionate about this art form.
