North Country Quilts: In Celebration of New Acquisitions

The very best examples of a traditional art form handed down through the generations and seeing a huge resurgence in popularity today are on display in The Bowes Museum.

North Country Quilts: In Celebration of New Acquisitions is open until 9 January 2022 and features more than 25 exquisite wholecloth, strippy, pieced and star quilts as well as templates and wholecloth quilt tops.

This stunning exhibition is testament to the living tradition of quilting and marries the past and present of the craft, bringing together historic and contemporary quilts, with fascinating stories, from across the North of England that have been acquired by the Museum in the last 20 years.
