Michele McLaughlin and Beth Bacher will discuss the 55 years after the Civil War and the new confidence women exhibited with over 30 different examples of quilts and textiles. Learn about the foundation of modern quilting and how women used their courage, creativity–and quilts– to achieve social and political changes.
