American Quilt Study Group Meeting/Milwaukee

The American Quilt Study Group held its 35th yearly seminar last week in Milwaukee. It's an annual highlight in the quilt historian's year. What's the best part?

  • Old friends
  • New friends
  • Scholarly papers
  • Antique Quilt Exhibits
  • Exhibit of reproduction Civil War Quilt Study quilts
  • Tours
  • Study Centers

  • Rod Kiracofe talking about quilts from
    the mid- to late-20th century from his new book:

    Unconventional and Unexpected
    American Quilts Below the Radar 1950-2000


    • Shopping Ops has to be a top draw. 

    One can buy (or see) spectacular quilts from dealers who come from around the country. The onsite exhibits and sales are open only to registrants.

    We also have an auction room featuring donations from members. This sale benefits the organization.

    There's an enormous silent auction.

    we bid for a couple of days

    Notice finger in lower left. These are bi-i-i-ig yo-yos

    The donor auction has items for all tastes.

    from finished quilts....

    and tops

    to blocks

    and paper ephemera, books...you name it...

    More pictures to tempt you to consider 
    attending the 2015 seminar in Indianapolis, September 9-13.

    The 2014 Seminar was hosted by the Wisconsin Quilt Study Group and
    the Northern Illinois Quilt Study Group.

    Brochures for next fall's event will be mailed in early summer.
