Quilts highlighting country schools will be on exhibit June 8 through August 1, 2018 at Homestead National Monument of America. These unique quilts will be displayed at the Homestead Education Center for all park visitors to enjoy. The quilt show will take place in honor of the Country School Association of America’s annual national conference happening at the same time.
The quilts were specially created for the conference by Studio Art Quilt Associates, Inc. (SAQA). SAQA is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the art quilt through education, exhibitions, professional development, documentation, and publications. SAQA defines an art quilt as "a creative visual work that is layered and stitched or that references this form of stitched layered structure."
