Made in Kyrgyzstan
In Kyrgyzstan a kurama tushtuk is a wall hanging that is frequently the focal point inside of a yurt, the traditional tent dwelling of Central Asian nomadic peoples.
Western quiltmakers might recognize two Log Cabin variation blocks in this piece: Pineapple and Courthouse steps. They may also recognize the proliferation of repeating triangles, often called Flying Geese.
A similar piece from our collection will be displayed in “Getting to Know You,” the inaugural exhibition in Quilt House’s newly expanded gallery.
