About This Interactive Collection
There are four main sections to this interactive version of A Piece of My Soul: Quilts by Black Arkansans.
The first section deals with Quilting Families. Many of the Old State House Museum's quilts provide an opportunity to observe both the continuity and evolution of quilting traditions as they are passed down from generation to generation.
The Individual Quilters section focuses on specific quilters. In some instances we have only a single example of their work. In other cases multiple quilts give evidence of the range of the maker's talents over a lifetime of quilting.
Quilts by Type offers another way to view many of the quilts from the first two sections. Here similar types of quilts by various women are compared.
Finally there is a section giving acknowledgements to two women who made this exhibit possible, as well as providing links to other websites on quilting.
