Francis Scott Key Lecture: Inspirations Behind Maryland's Unique Quilt Tradition

Maryland has a rich and unique quilt tradition. Maryland women made use of the finest fabrics pouring into Baltimore’s port and, later, cottons produced in America’s factories to create stunning works of textile art. Alden O’Brien, Curator of Costumes and Textiles, Daughters of the American Revolution Museum, will explore how English quilt traditions, decorative arts trends, Maryland furniture and even local Baltimore life inspired quilt makers to develop quilt styles that fit within regional traditions, yet were uniquely Maryland, from early 1800s chintz appliqué, to the famous Baltimore Album quilts at mid-century. Cost is $50 for members and nonmembers.
