Quilting in the Finger Lakes

This large, unnamed, quilted banner by Alice grant depicts Pennsylvania Quaker artist Edward Hicks, creating animals for his work The Peaceable Kingdom. The banner is in the permanent collection of the Tompkins County Public Library (Ithaca, New York) and hangs in the children's reading room.

Quilting is a popular activitiy in the Finger Lakes where we view quilting as both an art and a craft. The Finger Lakes has many enthusiastic, highly creative, and competent quilters. You can find all the quilting supplies you need in the Finger Lakes as well as many new and historic quilts.
