You may have seen Audrey Esarey's quilts featured on our site a time or two. There is a reason for that, as her quilts, often circular in nature, are stunning examples of the Modern Quilt movement. In this Wednesday's Textile Talk, you will get a glimpse of those quilts and more as the National Quilt Museum presents Contemporary Curves, "a collection of quilts exploring circular shapes and dynamic, high-contrast colors made by Audrey Esarey. The quilts featured in this exhibit are primarily from three ongoing series: Radial Quilts, Watercolor Quilts, and Aura Quilts." Register today and watch when this episode airs this Wednesday, August 31, 2022, at 2 PM EDT.
