As an art form, quilts have deep roots in American life and experience. For more than three centuries, the artists, primarily women, have created highly individualized expressions in this medium that is both yielding and unforgiving, and challenges the maker to test the limits imposed by cutting and piecing bits of fabric.

This exhibition has been organized by the American Folk Art Museum, New York.
