Photos of 1800’s Quilts from Shenandoah Valley

Antebellum and Present-day Quilts of the Upper Shenandoah Valley

This 1995 exhibition marks the first organized display of antebellum quilts from the upper Shenandoah Valley.   Of the 47 quilts in the exhibition, 26 were made between 1840 and 1860.

Shown  is a selection of quilts from an exhibition held at the Woodrow Wilson Birthplace and Museum during the spring of 1995.  Only quilts from the mid-eighteen hundreds are pictured on the web site.
