The Rocky Mountain Quilt Exhibit
200 Violet Street, Unit 140
Golden, CO 80401
Presented in collaboration with the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum, the exhibit showcases the diversity and exuberance of some of the most talented contemporary Russian craftswomen. Quilts depict handwork history in Ivanovo, Russia; traditional women’s dress of Russia; Russian nursery rhymes and folklore; heroic history; and daily life of Russian culture from the past and present. Delicate hand stitching and whimsical applique play with calico prints in bright primary colors to tell a story with each quilt, making this an enjoyable exhibit for all ages. Many works feature contemporary fabrics and machine stitching, showing the evolution of patchwork sewing and art quilting within the country.
