On display through January 18, 2020. Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum issued a Call for Entries for quilts using the very British Style of English Paper Piecing. Quilts made from this longtime method, which is very labor intensive are hand pieced, which enables the sewer/quilter to accomplish very precise and detailed work. Quilts on display range from traditional patterns to the current and very modern abstract works of art.
On display in the small gallery, a selection of Museum quilts which have been constructed using the English Paper Pieced method, along with some of Tina Gravatt’s miniature quilts made with English Paper Piecing.
