This year’s theme brings the outdoors inside with Flowers on the Bed. “Quilts were one of the few areas of self-expression for 19th century women; they stitched their views of the world into every quilt they made,” said LBL Special Events Coordinator, Cindy Earls. “In the early Victorian era, quilting and flowers, both wild and domestic, were popular. Quilt patterns were created to look like favorite flowers; it was a way to bring the natural world indoors and to put brightly flowered quilts on the bed.”

Throughout the weekend, enjoy a display of 19th and 20th century flower patterned quilts from a simple patchwork quilt to an intricate applique quilt.

Programs include

  • Sat & Sun, 1:00pm – Quilt Turning: Preservation and Stories
  • Sat, 1:00pm-3:00pm – Green Woodworking

“The 1800s were a very important time for quilting, we encourage everyone to come to the Quilt Show to learn more about a mid-19th century farm family,” said Jessye Bostick, Homeplace Quilt Show Coordinator. “This is a great opportunity to see how quilting patterns, fabrics, and uses have changed over the years.”
