8. The Modern Era

On Sunday, July 17 the museum hosted “Quilt Walk”, an indoor / outdoor exhibit that included heritage quilts from the CMMM collections and more recent items created by local crafters. For those of you who weren’t able to attend, we’d like to show you, over the next week or so, the beautiful handiwork we had on display.

From Lucille Bullerwell:

This was the first quilt that I made. I was ‘into’ houses for decorating my home and ordered the pattern from an American magazine. Crafted by Lucille Bullerwell in 1982.

Excerpt from “Timeline of Quilting History” compiled and written by the Clayton McLain Memorial Museum:

In modern times, art quilts have started to become popular for their aesthetic and artistic qualities, rather than for functionality (i.e. they may hang on a wall instead of lying on a bed).
