Antique Ohio Amish Quilts from Darwin D.  Bearley's collection

Antique Ohio Amish Quilts from the Darwin Bearley Collection

www.sjquiltmuseum.org

Antique Ohio Amish Quilts from the Darwin Bearley Collection includes over forty bed, crib and doll quilts, illustrating the breadth of the Ohio Amish quilt making tradition between 1880 and 1940. The strong graphics and vivid color combinations of these quilts have inspired artists and quilt makers since they were first seen outside the Amish community. Each quilt in the Bearley Collection contains a story about its maker, recipient, or the dealer/collector who found these objects, brought them out of Amish homes and into the marketplace. Together, these stories reveal much about the quilt makers and collectors. On view November 15, 2014 through March 1, 2015. December 7: Members Walkthrough 1-2pm and Reception 2-4pm
