Description

From the permanent collections at ROM comes a new exhibition highlighting some of the most visually intoxicating examples of artistry, community, and sustainability made in Canada: quilts.


Quilts are repositories of past and present lives. Exquisitely patterned and meticulously stitched, they hold the interwoven legacies of home and family. The exhibition features rarely displayed Canadian-made quilts dating from the 1850s to the present day, and showcases a range of designs from utility quilts constructed from recycled materials for warmth and comfort to stunning examples created to mark life changing events. Made by individuals and communities, each quilt unlocks unique stories about makers, materials, composition, construction, and the shared histories of those who made it.


The timeless beauty of colour paired with each quilt’s clever and complex composition will fascinate, captivate, and inspire, whether you’re a novice or experienced quilter, interested in making sustainable design solutions, or keen to learn more about historic and contemporary culture of everyday life in Canada.
