Media Advisory: Seeing Double Quilt Exhibit at Winedale

The Winedale Historical Complex, a division of the Briscoe Center for American History at the University of Texas at Austin, proudly presents Seeing Double: Paired Versions of Popular Quilt Patterns.

Seeing Double, drawn from the richness of the Winedale Quilt Collection, featuring pairs of quilts constructed years apart but based on the same pattern. Certain patterns have attracted quilt makers for decades, such as mosaic quilts based on pieced
hexagons. By pairing quilts, the exhibit invites comparison on many levels, including artistic style, needlework proficiency and pattern interpretation. Quilts on display date from 1845 to 2009. Many of them have never been exhibited.

Exhibit dates: Feb 16 – 28, 2015, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Free and open to the public.

culture.
