Default Vintage quilts made by men

War and Pieced is the first exhibition in the United States to showcase the spectacularly complex geometric quilts made exclusively by men using richly dyed wools derived from British military and dress uniforms. Here is a link to a very interesting exhibition of quilts made during times of war...exclusively by men. They will amaze and astound.

https://folkartmuseum.org/exhibition...itary-fabrics/

and give a whole new meaning to "Quilts of Valor."

Not to take anything away from this body of work, but not a single one of the quilts identified can be proven to be made by men. Artist unknown is on all of them. How do they figure men made them? Perhaps made by men, but perhaps not. PS I know men make marvelous quilts.

Incredible work, and definitely worth having a look... sad though that the quilter isn't known much of the time... there's an argument for labeling quilts...
Thanks for sharing this.
