War and Pieced: The Annette Gero Collection of Quilts From Military Fabrics

Direct from New York this exhibition is a showcase of the spectacularly complex geometric quilts made exclusively by men using richly dyed wools derived from British military and dress uniforms drawn from the unparalleled collection of internationally acclaimed quilt authority Dr. Annette Gero. Once termed “soldiers’ quilts” or “convalescent quilts,” the pieced textiles are most closely associated with the Crimean War as well as conflicts in India, South Africa, and other troubled regions of the British Empire during the nineteenth century.
