"Just for the Fun of It: Favorite Antique Quilts from the Pilgrim Roy Collection"
Guest Curator, Gerald E. Roy, presents quilts from the Pilgrim/Roy Collection that have never been shown before. Best described by an expression from the Pennsylvania Dutch, Amish, and Mennonites--”jus for purdy”-- these quilts exhibit a particular point of view on the part of the maker. Some defy the conventional norms of their time, while others present a unique use of color.
In the words of Mr. Roy, “I am grateful to have been given the chance of sharing these quilts and look forward to reassuring those, who make quilts ‘Just For The Fun Of It,’ that they are adding to a rich quilt making tradition.”
