One of the most interesting exhibits at the annual DLQ show is the Vintage Quilts Exhibit which is an exhibit dedicated to the display and history of quilting.

“The history of America can be seen in the history of quilts: in the rich heritage left us by those thrifty, self-sufficient women who helped settle this land, in the families whose history is sewn into quilts one patch at a time, and in the legacy of the quilting arts passed on to children and grandchildren so they may carry them forward into the future.” (America’s Quilting History”)
