ABOUT THE TEXAS QUILT MUSEUM
The Texas Quilt Museum is housed in two historic 1890s buildings, which provide a fine showcase for both antique and contemporary quilt art with their high ceilings, brick walls, and original hardwood floors.
Home for the Museum, a 501(c)(3) entity, is the picturesque Central Texas town of La Grange, located on the winding Colorado River between two major highways. It’s an easy drive from the state’s major cities and airline hubs.

Meet Our Visitors
OCTOBER 13, 2015
Well-known Quilter/author/teacher Libby Lehman in front of Sink Or Swim #21 & #22 by Sue Benner.
Noted Texas quilt and quilting instructor Cynthia Collier will give a FREE lecture this Saturday, October 10, at 3 p.m. at the Museum. Admission will be free beginning at 2 p.m.
She will discuss the exhibit of her work, “Cynthia Collier: Transformed by Tradition,” which is currently on display and features 10 of her works.
For three decades, Cynthia Collier has focused on exploring Baltimore Album appliqué. She has made her own unique stamp on making quilts in that style from the 1840s, as well as meticulously pieced medallion styles of the 1830s.
Experimenting with vibrant contemporary fabrics, Collier honors the rich history of quilting tradition with a 21st-century emphasis.

“This exemplary exhibit of Collier’s work reflects the beauty of traditional quiltmaking, and our appreciation of it as art,” notes Guest Curator Vicki Mangum.
