Experience winter with newest exhibit

Brashears Baltimore Album Quilt is among those on display during the “Reds and Greens: Threads of Winters Past” exhibit at the Virginia Quilt Museum in Harrisonburg, Va.

The Virginia Quilt Museum will open the “Reds and Greens: Threads of Winters Past” exhibit to the public on Friday, Nov. 20.

“These quilts have a lot of charm,” said Susan Farmer, the Executive Director of the Virginia Quilt Museum. “The way the reds and greens fade into different shades tells a lot about the history of dyes and how they change through the centuries. These quilts are a great representation of historic quilting techniques and artistry.”

The exhibit is curated by Farmer and Rachel Gregor, the museum’s Curatorial Assistant.

Featured quilts date back to the 1800s and are part of the Virginia Quilt Museum’s permanent collection.

The Virginia Quilt Museum is the Official Quilt Museum of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Founded in 1995, the museum’s mission is “celebrating and nurturing Virginia’s quilting heritage.” The museum’s three floors of rotating exhibits are open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is located at 301 S. Main St. Harrisonburg, Va.
