Beyond the Valley (based on the Valley Botanical) curated by Doreen Johnson and Dawn Ronningen

Quilts for this exhibit have been submitted from members of the online Shenandoah Valley Botanical Album Sew Along and reflect the celebration and preservation of an American iconic Folk Art quilt that depicted botanicals of the Shenandoah Valley area of Virginia just prior to the Civil War.  In 1858, Esther Blair Matthews created a beautiful Botanical Album quilt that voiced her declaration and devotion to her family and her country.
