October is Arts and Humanities Month nationally and in Little Rock. Americans for the Arts has identified a different arts topic to be posted for each day in the month. Next up is Patterns.
One way to highlight patterns is to look at some in the Stitched Together exhibit at Historic Arkansas Museum. Quilting is a skill that was carried to the New World by immigrants. However, in the almost two and half centuries since the colonies became states, quilting has evolved into a uniquely American tradition.
Quilting is all about patterns, sometimes repeating, sometimes in response. But it is all about patterns.
Here are a few from the exhibit:
The first features my favorite fabric pattern: PLAID!
