Piece by Piece: Geometric Quilts

The Charleston Museum presents Piece by Piece: Geometric Quilts, a special exhibition featuring themed historic quilts from its extensive collection. Different shapes and piecing techniques have traditionally been mainstays of the quilting craft. From magnificent stars to traditional nine-patch, these quilts include clever hexagons of English paper-template piecing along with Log Cabins, Flying Geese, Chimney Sweeps and even a few Crazy Quilts. With their creative use of shapes, patterns and design, these eye-catching historic pieces represent true works of art that will appeal to both the quilter and non-quilter alike. On display through May 31. Free with museum admission.
