Join RMQM to view Victorian-era quilts. Victorian women liked to show off, and they did that by making detailed, intricate quilts. Unlike the previous generation of women who made quilts for warmth and utility, Victorians made quilts that only had to be beautiful. As women of leisure, they had time to study art and fancy needlework, and they used this new quilt style to demonstrate their skills. They also used their quilts to tell secrets! Learn about symbolism and the language of flowers. Several great examples will be shown from the museum’s educational collection. Space is limited; registration is recommended.
