A Soldier's Quilt c. 1863-68
Margo Krager, a leading authority in vintage textiles, has joined with Washington Street Studio to create the collection A Soldier's Quilt.? During the Civil War, two lives succumbed to disease for every one lost in battle. Quilting circles were formed to create "soldier's quilts", made specifically to fit the smaller military cots. These quilts were easily rolled, packed and provided much needed comfort to the soldiers in the field and hospitals.
Current Exhibit RMQM's 30th Anniversary Celebration & Eugenia Mitchell Solo Exhibit of favorite quilts. Through October 17, 2020
