Pennsylvania Dutch Quilts: Folklore and Superstition

Monday, October 14 - 7pm

County Line Quilters is excited to welcome noted antique quilt collectors Pat and Arlan Christ to their Monday October 14 2013 meeting on the topic "Pennsylvania Dutch Quilts:  Folklore And Superstition".  Their presentation of quilts from the 1800's to early 1900's  will begin at 7PM in Fellowship Hall of New Britain Baptist Church, Butler Avenue and Tamanend Road.

Arlan and Pat Christ want to preserve the legacy of quilts from past generations by sharing the history that surrounds the art of quilting.  They enhance their wonderful collection of antique quilts with knowledge not only about the quilts themselves, but about the times and society from which the quilts evolved.  

The Christs will be sharing a number of the most colorful Pennsylvania Dutch quilts made during this period.  Their unique designs and quilting patterns have created the “Dutch” folk art we collect today.  Learn about the connection of “quilts”, “hex signs” and the world of “folklore and superstitions.”  Don't miss it!
