As a special tie-in with the Brick Store Museum’s ongoing exhibition, "Quilts from the Collections of the Brick Store Museum," the museum hosts, “The Patchwork Series.” On three separate Saturdays, different quilters will showcase and demonstrate various facets of their craft. This programming is made possible through a grant from the Virginia Hodgkins Somers Foundation. The series kicks off with Kate Adams, an internationally known artist working in antique textiles. Her background is in clothing and costume design, but she has always had a keen interest in the history and art of American quilts. Since 1982, she has been working in 1:12 scale, using traditional quilt patterns and vintage fabrics to create one-of-a-kind, limited edition miniature quilts measuring 9” square or smaller. Her quilts have appeared in many national publications. In an open-house format, watch Adams demonstrate her craft and see samples of her work.
