Georgia Quilt Show Opens in Atlanta


The Atlanta History Center opened a major new quilt exhibit on September 9, 2006, entitled Designs of the Times: Twentieth-Century Georgia Quilts. The exhibit features a selection of Georgia quilts drawn from the statewide survey of more than 9,000 quilts documented by the Georgia Quilt Project.

This exhibition constitutes "the rest of the story," which began in 1998 with an exhibition of nineteenth-century quilts showecased at the Atlanta History Center called Georgia Quilts: Piecing Together History. The Georgia Quilt Project organized seventy-six quilt history days between 1990 and 1993, Georgians were asked to share their quilts in order to record information about them and photograph them. The Georgia Quilt Project data and images will be preserved in the Kenan Research Center at the Atlanta History Center, and will be available to quilt researchers and future historians.

The current twentieth century quilt exhibit will remain open until April 22, 2007. Admission is free with regular admission to the history center. For more information call (404) 814-4000 or visit http://www.AtlantaHistoryCenter.com


Comments:
I have inherieted a quitk that my Great Great Grandmother made that was documented back in September 07, 1990. I was wondering how I can find out about it, or if I can I have the paper from where it was documented.
