Quilting AZ's Past - exhibit at AHS Museum, Tempe in August

Quilts tell the story of mobile America. They traveled in almost every covered wagon, automobile, or U-Haul that transported people to the Copper State from all over the world. Quilts brought pieces of the history with them and ended up quilting Arizona's past.
