[image-1]We love seeing Charleston’s history through the eyes of the curators at the Charleston Museum (check out our Eat feature on the history of foodways in the city, out tomorrow). Beginning Fri. Oct. 20, the museum has a new exhibition displaying quilts from its extensive collection, Piece by Piece: Geometric Quilts. The exhibit will be on display through May 31, 2018. The museum is open Mon.-Sat., 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays, 12-5 p.m. Tickets start at $12 for adults.
The quilts on display in this particular exhibition feature, you guessed it, plenty of geometric shapes. Selections include a Stars & Diamonds paper template pieced quilt from 1852 by Marina Jones Gregg; a Star of Bethlehem quilt, circa mid 19th century; and a Drunkard’s Path quilt, circa 1900, whose pattern, appropriately, creates a meandering black pathway.
