“Patchwork of the Past” Exhibit

June 4, 2017 - September 30, 2017

Robeson County History Museum’s quilting exhibit.

Featuring quilts in every room of the museum, owned and/or installed by the women of the Lumber River Quilter’s Guild.

To see how scraps of cloth become folk art, a visit to the museum is in order. Many local quilts are on display. Some are heirlooms, and some contemporary and creative examples, such as the “Hungry, Hungry Caterpillar,” a take on the famous children’s book by Vickie Locklear, and “Christmas” by Cappy Kreminski.

The exhibit is an education in quilting. Samples of standard quilting squares are on display. These include: Jacob’s Ladder, Bear’s Paw, Log Cabin, Monkey Wrench, Wagon Wheel, Crossroads, Basket, North Star and more.

The Robeson County History Museum is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to noon and Sundays 2 to 4 p.m. If you would like to attend outside of these hours, we recommend that you call ahead and schedule an appointment – the museum is always happy to serve.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact 910-738-7979 or 910-228-0096.
