KATONAH, N.Y. -- Quilts made by hundreds of community members and visitors to the Katonah Museum of Art recently were donated to My Sister’s Place and to babies born at the Bedford Women’s Correctional Facility.
The Katonah museum is dedicated to developing meaningful relationships with the community, both individuals and other organizations and businesses. To that end, the museum created the quilt lab as part of its "Beyond the Bed" quilt exhibition that was on display earlier this year. Museum visitors made hundreds of log cabin quilt squares, which 33 volunteer quilters then sewed together to create 10 colorful quilts.
The project gave visitors to the Katonah Museum of Art a better understanding of just how much time, vision and skill goes into creating a quilt. It also gave visitors the opportunity to play a hands-on role in the process of community quilt-making, as well as knowing their creative efforts would help people in need.
