This Exhibit is Courtesy of the American Quilt Study Group & Quilt Museum Board Member Kathy Cray

The American Quilt Study Group encourages sound research in quilt history and provides opportunities for sharing discoveries. It was founded in 1980 by a group who believes that quilts hold unique stories and essential history. 


The AQSG quilt study challenges members to learn the history of an individual quilt by selecting one that addresses a specified design, style, or period.  Members then make a small quilt that replicates or interprets the original and share their discoveries. 


The 2016 quilt study theme, 19th Century Baskets, addresses a popular American motif.  The basket is the only human-made object that appears consistently in all styles, techniques, and periods of quilt making.  It may be no coincidence that around the world baskets, like quilts, usually were made by women, often as a communal activity.


A basket is a symbol of women’s traditional daily work: the gathering, storing, and carrying of food and necessities. Baskets represent the burdens and joys of their lives. Filled with food or flowers, the basket becomes a symbol of abundance, hospitality, hope, and giving.  Filled with eggs, it becomes a symbol of fertility.  As quilt enthusiasts, baskets reach deep into our (mostly feminine) hearts.
