“Clues in the Calico” by Barbara Brackman

Friday, October 26, 2018

Quilt scholar and author Barbara Brackman will present "Clues in the Calico," based on her book of the same name, at 5:30 p.m. The lecture is being held in conjunction with "Cheddar Quilts from the Joanna S. Rose Collection." 

This is a free event and open to the public.

In 2011, 650 red and white quilts from the thousand-plus collection of Joanna S. Rose were exhibited at the Park Avenue Armory. Rose’s collection of historic quilts featuring the sunny orange color better known as “cheddar,” popular from the post-Civil War period to the 1940s, will grace the IQSCM’s large West Gallery in a welcome antidote to the chill of fall and winter.
