The Quilts

Loudoun Museum and the Waterford Foundation have quilts made in Loudoun in the 19th and 20th centuries in their collections. Dozens of other designs were used in the area. Each pattern has artistic and historical significance.

Although the block is formed with straight stitching lines throughout, the specific placement of light and dark colors creates an illusion of curves and rotation, as in a barn dance. This quilt square will soon be gracing a small barn at George's Mill Farm.
