AQSG Biennial Quilt Study


Quilts of Yesterday Speak Today

AQSG members love to learn about quilts, and we also love making them! If you are maker, the Biennial Quilt Study is a great way to combine the creativity of quilt making with learning about a particular quilt, its maker (if known), style, and technique.

Here’s how it works. AQSG selects a specific design, style or time-period as the theme.  Participants are challenged to select an existing quilt that fits the quilt study
guidelines and create a smaller replica, interpreting the elements of the original quilt in a new and fresh way.

Your replica quilt may be selected for an exhibit at the next AQSG Seminar and may be included in a traveling exhibit hosted at museums around the country. Above are some examples from the 2018 Quilt Study 200 Years of Solid Color Quilts: Cultural and Regional Distinctions, 1800-2000.
