Ker Place Spring Reception and Exhibit Opening

"Piecing It All Together: Quilts of the Eastern Shore” – Featuring quilts from the Nabb Research Center collection, the exhibit highlights technical information about the quilts, including pattern names, the number of stitches per inch and types of fabric as well as the history behind the quilt.  These quilts come to life when we know who made them, where the makers lived and what the makers may have been doing when they made these quilts.  The quilts come from several families on the Eastern Shore, including the Lankford, Hargis, White, and Adkins families. The exhibit will also include quilts from the Belote, Parker, Wise and Turlington Families that are from the ESVHS collection
