Biennial Quilt Study Support
AQSG’s Biennial Quilt Study serves as a way to learn about our quilt heritage and to promote AQSG. The quilt study challenges members to learn the history of an individual quilt by selecting one that addresses a specified design, style, or period, and then making a small replica or interpretation of it. In their statement, participants examine what they learned and evaluate influences on the original quilt maker’s life, style, and technique.
All of the quilt study quilts are first exhibited at AQSG Seminar. Then, twenty five quilts that best exemplify the theme are selected to travel nationally to various venues for four years. The traveling exhibit presents the broader theme expressed by a collection of study quilts and permits AQSG to share this accessible learning process through venues across the U.S.
A book is created featuring all of the quilts submitted for a quilt study.
