Presenting Quiltside Chats!
Join us Sunday, July 18 @ 3pm ET for another intriguing Quiltside Chat!
AQSG Member Sue Reich sits down with Carolyn Ducey, Curator of Collections at the International Quilt Museum, to talk about the "Old Glory" quilt designed by Mary Erckenbrack.
"Old Glory" is a c1940 patriotic quilt with the names and symbols of states embroidered in the blocks. Sue Reich is an expert in the field of World War II quilts, as well as patriotic quilts and Quilts of Valor. She shares her depth of knowledge with us and help our contextual understanding of this quilt and its designer.
