Juneau to host quilt exhibit

Alaska quilts will tell their stories in "Quilts of Alaska: A Textile Album of the Last Frontier," an exhibition that opens May 13 at the Alaska State Museum in Juneau. The exhibit will feature 45 quilts and quilting items from Alaska.

The quilt exhibition, produced by the museum, is an outgrowth of a project called the Alaska Quilt Survey, which was patterned after similar efforts in other states through the last three decades. The survey involved sending volunteers to communities all over Alaska to host Discovery Days -- days during which residents brought family quilts to a central location to be documented.
