Diverse Traditions: South Asian Quilts 🌐

Du 8 juin au 7 octobre 2021

International Quilt Study Center & Museum

L’Asie du sud est riche en traditions de quilts depuis plusieurs siècles.

Women have used them in a multitude of ways: as bed covers, seating mats, tent panels, and dowry items. Varying techniques, color palettes, and formats can be found among different ethnic and regional groups, and certain styles can help identify where a quilt likely was made. In this group of Indian and Pakistani quilts from the International Quilt Museum’s Education Collection, we look at how the techniques of appliqué, piecing, and quilting are used among diverse South Asian communities.
