It features diverse artists from the 17th century to today. The quilts on view range from family heirlooms to acts of political protest, each with its own story. The exhibition brings together the only two surviving quilts by artist Harriet Powers, displaying the MFA’s Pictorial quilt (1895–98) alongside the Bible quilt (1885–86), on loan from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, for the first time.
