Old World Quilts features the earliest and most rare quilts of the International Quilt Study Center & Museum collection. The provenance of these quilts remain elusive and thus we turn to shared design elements and materials to identify their place and significance to quilt history. The exhibit includes silk and embroidered wholecoth quilts with pictorial designs and fanciful birds and animals that hale from around the world.
