Visitors will experience history, tradition, art, and demonstrations. A special collection of Patriotic Quilts will also be on display. Throughout the display members of Quilters’ Guild Acadienne will demonstrate various aspects of the quilt making process:

“Underground Railroad Quilts” – The story of how African American slaves used a quilt code to navigate the underground railroad

“Civil War Quilting” – The meaning behind quilt blocks from the Civil War

“Home of the Brave Quilts” – How quilters are honoring our fallen heroes of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan by presenting homemade quilts to their families.

It’s presented by the Lafayette Public Library System, The Lafayette Musuem/Alexandre Mouton House, and Quilters’ Guild Acadienne.
