Historic Quilt Exhibit
September 8 – 26, 2014

Our September exhibition is sure to be a real “stitch.” The Milwaukee County Historical Society will exhibit a number of quilts from its historic quilt collection. Many of these quilts have not been displayed for more than two decades. Dating mostly from the latter half of the 19th century, with some from the early 20th century, a number of styles are represented including log cabin, Irish chain, nine and ten patch, and a beautiful crazy quilt. These quilts will be hung throughout the main floor of the Historical Society and information sheets will be provided.
