New and Old Quilt Creations | Family Fun | Hands On!

The Northampton County Historical & Genealogical Society (NCHGS) has given the members of the Courthouse Quilters their 2016 challenge: Create authentic artisan quilts inspired by the Society’s own rich collection of quilts! This textile challenge and exhibition happily celebrates the patchwork tradition of Northampton County.

Courthouse Quilters and Patchwork Tradition exhibition will cover the history of quilting by hand and machine with a hands-on interactive opportunity for visitors, unique programming, and one-of-a-kind quilts. The Courthouse Quilters’ creations utilize a variety styles like applique and spider web designs from popular Victorian crazy quilts.

From April 16-August 1, 2016, these colorful one-of-a-kind Courthouse Quilts, in conjunction with NCHGS’ unique collection of quilts, will be on display exclusively at the Sigal Museum in Historic Downtown Easton.
