Quilts in U.S. History
Quilts often reflect the lives of their makers. Wedding quilts and baby quilts track the events in our lives. We use quilts to express our grief and loss, to help us cope with cancer or acts of violence, or to demonstrate political feelings. However, quilts don’t just track personal events, they also mirror the course of history in the United States. In this lecture, I discuss the history of quilting in this country and how it reflects the history of the U.S. itself from the colonial period until today.

“Julie presented a very informative lecture within the time frame allowed. She answered the questions in a very detailed way and I walked away with a much deeper appreciation of the importance that quilts have had in our society and culture.” —  Renate, Boston, MA
