This program will feature the quilts in the Filson’s collection, representing nearly 200 years of history. Each quilt has a story to tell. By looking at the patterns, materials, methods and technologies used to make the quilts, we can uncover personal narratives of the women and men who made them, as well as discover broader social, economic and cultural histories of the Ohio River Valley. Several quilts will be brought out from storage for visitors to examine in person. Maureen Lane is the Filson’s Museum Registrar and Exhibits Coordinator.  She has an M.A. in American Studies with a focus in Art and Material Culture from Penn State University, as well as an M.A. in Museum Studies from Johns Hopkins University. Maureen and Brooks Vessels, the Museum Collections Assistant, are currently inventorying, cataloging and rehousing the Filson’s textile and clothing collection, which contains several thousand quilts, coverlets, domestic linens, clothing, undergarments and accessories, including shoes. The Filson’s textile collection is a significant research collection available for study. The collection be accessible online in the next several years.
